Inactive items are items that have been hidden and cannot be utilized in the pricebook in any way. This includes selling, ordering, receiving, and counting.
Utilizing inactive items is a great way to have a clutter free pricebook while keeping all previous imported and discontinued items in a secluded area to where they can be reactivated at any time. The inactive items wizard can automatically scan the pricebook and make suggestions to deactivate items that meet all the criteria of a discontinued or non-carried item.
When changing, sending, or deleting items, it only affects the checked items in the grid.
