Has anyone’s online order information moved from “Order Sent to Dealer” to “Order Accepted”. And what exactly does that mean? Accepted by dealer? Accepted by Ford?

I believe the dealer has to accept the order on their end. I think many folks are still waiting on that piece.

The dealer has to log on to the order management site "Online Order Acceptance Portal" and accept your order. They will see your order request under, "Orders Requiring Attention".

Once the dealer accepts your order they are accepting the wholesale allocation of that unit (so even if you back out, the vehicle is still going to that dealer).

You're not alone. Mine is still waiting to be accepted. I'm guessing that the people that need to approve it weren't there over the weekend.

Mine switched to Accepted yesterday, a day after my dealer called to confirm he had accepted the order in their system.

Looks like it's going to take time from order sent to order accepted, but I'm not too worried as my part is done. I would say if this time next week it still says not accepted, then I would give a call to the dealer and confirm. This should not be a big deal and as said prior it shouldn't change your place in line. In the end that is what most care about, getting ahead of the pack. I am sure it will come down to region, model and maybe even color.

Mine was accepted first thing this morning. The dealer has to log in and agree to take the order, then it moves to accepted.

I didn't bother checking mine until about midday today when it showed as accepted--then about 20 minutes after I checked my salesperson called to tell me they accepted it LOL. Of course he followed that up with "I have no idea what happens now!"

After I placed my order online I emailed the dealer. I mentioned he needed to go into the system to accept it and he did shortly thereafter.

I spoke with my dealer today and they told me they won't get my order from Ford until 7/1. That is when I expect the order to be accepted.

That does not sound right.

My dealer text me to verify the trim levels and accepted it. It moved to accepted in the portal by the time I checked after I replied.

I can vouch (as someone else stated) that it can take a day for the "Order Accepted" status to show a checkmark after the dealer actually submits the acceptance to Ford.

My Dealer placed my order for me however it still shows not Accepted when I login. I asked them why and, they are waiting for some issues to be sorted out before accepting all their orders. There is also a couple training classes for the dealership staff that is going on parallel to the orders being place.
