Copying a Product Record

When you copy a product record, all parts of the product definition are included in the copy.

If you copy a customizable product record, the copy includes all the relationships, links, resources, scripts, rules, and user interface.

Use the Copy feature to create product templates. For example, your product line has a two-tiered structure. The first tier contains a half-dozen products that have a similar basic structure. The second tier contains products based on the structure of the products in the first tier.

You could create the first tier by copying a template customizable product 6 times. You would then modify each of the copies to form the first tier. These then become the templates you would use to create the second tier.
