Assigning a Generation Method to a Product
Part number generation methods defined on a product class are not inherited by the products in the class. You must manually assign the part number generation method to a product.
When you assign a generation method to a product, this method is used for generating part numbers in all new quotes, orders and so on.
To assign a generation method to a product
- Navigate to Product Administration.
- Query for the desired product.
Alternatively, query for the desired product class to display all the products in the class.
- Click in the product record's Part Number Method field, open the drop-down menu, and choose the desired generation method.
