The colors overview is a library where you can create the colors that you are going to refer to in the sales and production orders. You will be able to specify more detailed colours about the items in the item details.
This library will be available in the Admin section, under the option 'Colors'.

To do so, select the color you want to deactivate and uncheck the option 'ACTIVE'.
