D365 F&O: Create a Product Master and Variants
In this video.
We are going to create a product master and then some product variations to release.
So product information management. We can either create this in release products which will automatically release it into this legal entity, or we'll go to product Masters and release it later. So we'll create a new product master.
And we want this to be a physical product and item.
Product master will give this.
And we are going.
To create a product master for some leather gloves.
And the retail category. We can use a preset hierarchy.
And here we want to specify.
The dimension group and.
The gloves will come in different colours and sizes, so we'll choose that and we can cheque the active dimensions by clicking on that.
And we see the active dimensions in this group are size, colour and.
These dimensions are available to use as criteria on trade agreements for both purchase and sales prices.
We'll go back to our form.
Now the configuration technology determines how and when the product variants based on the current product master are configured. So predefined variants we specify those product variants. Now the other two options are configured when they are.
Added to transaction lines but we won't cover those here, so we'll stick with predefined variants and create our product master.
So let's set up the product master so that product variants can be created. So far we can see we have no product variants.
So we need to set up our product dimensions.
And as we saw before, the active dimensions are sizes and colours, so we'll create a new size and we'll choose from our predefined list.
And we can give that a name.
And we'll add a new.
This will be.
And a third one.
And we'll save those.
We'll go to our colours.
We'll choose a couple of colours from our predefined list.
We'll have black.
Why not give it a name?
And one more colour.
We'll choose cherry.
And save that.
So now we've set up our product dimensions. We can go to product variants and we can create some variants, either manually by choosing the specific size.
Or we can just ask for variant suggestions which will give us every possible combination. We will select all.
And we will now have.
All of our different combinations of size and colour.
Now, in the future we may wish to add additional product dimensions and in order to automatically generate new product variants.
Based on those new dimensions, we can just toggle generate variants automatically, and then when we do add another dimension, we'll add another colour.
Now when we go to our product variance.
We will see those additional combinations automatically created.
Now we have created all our product variants. We are going to release them all at the same time. So we release products.
And this gives us the product master.
All the different variants.
So we're going to release everything at once. We will choose the legal entity in which to release them, or choose this.
And we get our summary.
Of products to be released.
And our products have been released.
