The Exp:resso Store plugin by default assigns all new orders to the New status. This in turn triggers the New status email confirmation to be sent out.
The problem I'm dealing with is that I have a few orders that need to completely bypass the New status. Those orders are submitted using a separate form from the rest of the orders, and as such, I'd like to be able to give them a separate Status so that the default New order email confirmation never gets sent out for them.
Any ideas on how I might accomplish this? Thanks for any help you can offer!
