    In the Tracking ID field on the Shipments Screen / Shipment Tab is there are certain webpage or web page address syntax that would allow the entered tracking number stored in the Tracking ID to load on the UPS tracking website?  For example:  http://wwwapps.ups.com/tracking/tracking.cgi?tracknum=1Z1A018F0394884055

    When setting up the Shipper/Carrier in the Organizations form, you can specify a Web Site.

    This Web site will be opened if you double click the tracking ID of a shipment.

    At this time we do not have functionality implemented to open the web site while feeding the tracking number.

    Hope this answers your question

    Correction to my first reply.

    We are able to open specific tracking links. There is the possibility to provide a link to a carriers website using a parameterized link. If the control for the

    tracking ID in Shipments form detects the pattern ‘[_TRACKING_ID_]’ it will try to substitute with the current tracking ID of the Shipment.

    Using the link you provided in the post, the link stored at the carrier has to be: http://wwwapps.ups.com/tracking/tracking.cgi?tracknum=%5B_TRACKING_ID_%5D

    This should work with inSight  at least as far back as 8.x.
