The item is used to create the components of a style. You can start sourcing for items before you know which design your styles will have.
However, before you start creating items, make sure to adjust the needed Admin settings:
You can leave supplier blank if you want to use the item as a standard for all suppliers. Suppliers can only see items in the item library, where they are selected as the supplier. Otherwise, they will not see any link to the item in the style item list.
Managing quality, color and size approvals
It is necessary to create an item per supplier to manage approval of qualities, colors and sizes.
In the Items section:
1) Click the 'Add Item' button in the upper right corner of the page
2) In the new style header, you will see several fields to select. Start by choosing the brand - if only one brand added, it will be pre-selected - and the contact person in charge of the style. Default the User creating the Item will be set at Contact person - this can of course be changed.
Go ahead and type in the item name (*mandatory) and item no. (optional). Later on, you can select the supplier, as well as the supplier contact person (list of active supplier users from this supplier). Description and Categories fields are optional.
Lastly, upload the style image (right side) - it can be a .jpg, .png, .gif, .tif, .bmp.
