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

  1. Navigate to Product Administration.
  2. Query for the desired product.

    Alternatively, query for the desired product class to display all the products in the class.

  3. Click in the product record's Part Number Method field, open the drop-down menu, and choose the desired generation method.
