Inactive products/products deletion

In the system, we can remove a product from the product list at any time. To do this, go to the Warehouse/Products> Products tab, and then click on the name of the given product. After entering the product card preview, select the Delete option in the upper right corner.

When the product has not been sold or bought yet and is not entered on any invoice or warehouse document, it will be removed from the system.

It often happens, however, that the product that we want to remove has already been sold/bought and appears on invoices and warehouse documents. Such a product cannot be completely removed from the system. The product then becomes inactive and is initially not visible in the product list.

To see the list of inactive/deleted products in the system, use the more option in the side panel of the product list, where the Inactive products field will appear. For example, select only inactive ones and click the Search button.

To reactivate a product, edit it and deselect the Inactive option. After saving the changes, the product should appear again in the product list.

NOTE! An inactive product that cannot be permanently removed from the system, e.g. with the name “Product01”, blocks this name, which means that you cannot add a second product with the same name to the system.

You can deactivate a product that has a positive quantity in the system.
This option is often used when the sale of a product from stock is temporarily suspended, e.g. for seasonal products.
