Enabling a Vehicle Product Type

Normally, to add products, your company administrator uses the Content Management portion of the Admin tool. For Vehicles, the administrator can update the product record with the Product Type field set to Vehicle. Note that the Product Type for Vehicle records is not displayed in the product default layout. To enable the Product Type for a vehicle, your company administrator can create a custom product page layout by completing the steps in the following procedure.

To display the product type for a vehicle record

  1. From any page, click Admin, click Application Customization, click Product, click Product Page Layout, and copy the Product Page Standard Layout to a new layout.
  2. Complete the Page Layout Wizard for the Product:
    1. In Step 1, provide a name for your layout.
    2. In Step 2, check the Required box for the Product Type.
    3. In Step 3, make sure that the Product Type field is listed in the Key Product Information section on the right.
    4. Click Finish to exit the wizard.
  3. Assign the new custom layout to a user role as required using the Role Management Wizard.
    1. Click Admin, click User Management and Access Controls, then click Role Management:
    2. Find the role that you want to assign to the custom product page layout and click Edit.
    3. In Step 6 of the wizard, change the Page Layout Name to the custom product page layout for the Product record.
    4. Click Finish to exit the wizard.

      The user whose role has been modified can create a product record with the Product Type field by using the Content Management functionality. For more information on adding products, see Setting Up Company Products.
