Defining Item Status Codes
You can use statuses to provide default values for certain item attributes to control the functionality of an item. When you update the values for a status, all items to which it is assigned are also updated.
Attention: When your current organization is not the Item Master organization, the organization is temporarily changed to the Item Master organization until you exit this window. You can use the statuses created here in all defined organizations.
A status code controls certain item attributes designated as status attributes. The status attributes are:
Associated with each status attribute is a Status Setting option. This option determines whether a status attribute value is set by the status code and is not updatable, defaulted and updatable, or not used when you define an item. You choose a Status Setting for a status attribute with the Item Attributes Controls window. You assign a status code to an item when you define the item. See: Status Attributes and Item Status Control.
To define an item status:
2. Enter a unique name for the status code.
3. For each attribute, use the Value option to indicate the functionality that is controlled by the status code.
To delete an item status:
- You can delete a status if it has not been used.
To make an item status inactive:
- Enter the date on which the item status becomes inactive.
As of this date, you can no longer assign this status to an item. The status remains valid for items to which it is already assigned.
