Product Status definitions

Hello, the on line support list product status definitions as follows:

  • First value: Active — The product is available for all the processes.
  • Second value: In development
  • Third value: Shortage — The product does not appear in search results, but can be used by directly entering its code. A non blocking warning message appears. If the product category is in With confirmation mode, the status cannot not be accessed and its value is forced to In development.
  • Fourth value: Not renewed
  • Fifth value: Expired
  • Sixth value: Not usable — The product does not appear in search results and cannot be used in the processings. If you enter the product code, a blocking message displays.

For value 2, 4 and 5 - whats happens when product is flagged in those categories?

Thanks

  • On the field help of the product status, it also list each status' behavior under each module. The translation may be a bit off. The "shortage" status sometimes is translated as "Not Stocked"

    Impact of these different statuses in the logistic modules:

    Sales Module

    • When the product is Active, it can be entered and selected in all sales documents.
    • When a product is In development, Not stocked, Not renewed or Expired, it can be entered (a warning message is displayed) in all sales documents, but it will not be suggested for selection.
    • When a product is Non usable, it can neither be entered (Blocking message) nor suggested for selection.

    Purchase Module

    • When the product is Active, it can be entered and selected in all purchase documents.
    • When a product is In development, Not stocked, Not renewed or Expired, it cannot be entered except in purchase invoices. It will not be suggested for selection in any document. On receipt, it will however be possible to select an order or shipment for a product having these statuses. For requests for quotation, it is possible to enter a product in the process of being developed if required.
    • When a product is in shortage, it can only be entered in the following documents (with a warning message): purchase orders, contracts, buyer plan, workbench (generation of orders or delivery requests only), global planning (generation of orders or delivery requests only), grouping plan (the orders for product having this status have the suffix "-") and purchase invoices.
      It will not be suggested for selection in any document. On receipt, it will however be possible to select an order or shipment for a product having these statuses.
    • When a product is Non usable, it can neither be entered (Blocking message) nor suggested for selection. It will also be impossible to select an order or shipment for a product having this status.

    Use the status to change product availability. The titles in the local menu can be set up and managed as follows:

    • First value: Active: The product is available in all the processes.
    • Second value: In development
    • Third value: On shortage: The product does not appear in search results, but it can be used by directly entering its code. A non blocking warning message appears. If the product category is associated with the With confirmation creation mode, the status cannot not be accessed and its value is forced to the second value, In development.
    • Fourth value: Not renewed
    • Fifth value: Expired
    • Sixth value: Not usable: The product does not appear in search results and cannot be used in the scripts. If you enter the product code, a blocking message displays.
