The windows of creating and editing a product appear identically. In order to create a new product in the system, you should press the "New product" button located in the top part of the tab. To edit a product, you should go to the mode of viewing it by clicking it in the list. Then you should pass to the "Edit" tab located in the left part. The information is divided into some blocks for a better convenience:
The following information is specified here:
•Name — the name of the product;
•Service — if this is a service, this field must be checked;
•Status — the status of the product;
•Unit — the measurement units of the product;
•Category — the category of the product;
•Group — the group the product belongs to.
The wide possibilities of dividing the products into categories, groups, etc. allows creating their accurate and convenient classification. Values specified in the "Status", "Units", "Category" and "Group" fields are memorized by the system and can be available from the pop-up lists for further product creation:
The unnecessary entries memorized by the system can be deleted by pressing the button located to the right of each entry in the list.
