Set up a replacement article

You can set up a replacement article. Profit automatically suggests this replacement article in the order process if insufficient stock is available. You might use this functionality, for example, if you are able to deliver a different article in case of insufficient stock. You can also use this functionality if an article is no longer available or because you want to start offering an improved article.

To set up a replacement article:

  1. Go to: Order Management / Item / Article.
  2. Open the properties of the article. This is the article that is no longer part of your product range.
  3. Go to the tab: General.
  4. Select an article in Replacement article.
  5. Select the Blocked check box if you want the replacement article to be used instead of the current article when you add a line with this article to a quotation/packing slip/sales order/etc. This also applies to imports.

    If you do not select the Blocked check box, nothing happens if sufficient stock of the current article is still available. However, once the stock of the current article is insufficient, you see the question whether you want to use the replacement article on the line. If you choose this option, the full quantity on the line is entered against the replacement article. This means that some stock of the current article may remain.
