Effective order management requires you to process a lot of information. The more information you can get from the order grid, the faster you can process orders without having to go to each order separately.

However, some information might be missing. And that's when you need to reindex the Magento 2 order grid.

When to Reindex Order Grid in Magento? 

Sometimes, the actual order data and order data displayed in the grid are different. The billing company name is missing, the shipping address is incomplete or the order is not generated in the grid at all.

It confuses the store managers and slows down the process. They are not able to find relevant orders when filtering through them. So, the order fulfilment process becomes inefficient.
