Ever noticed that there are many things we don’t notice as long as nothing changes? Think about it – we notice that the milk ran out only when we want to have coffee, right? That’s because we have habits and … defaults! And same apply to businesses. If you are using business partner catalog numbers, you may have multiple catalog numbers for a given item for a certain business partner. Maybe it’s a seasonal thing, or when special editions are launched – whatever the reason is – there are multiple catalog numbers for that item! To increase efficiency and enhance user experience, SAP Business One enables you to set a default catalog number per item per business partner:
You can do it by selecting the relevant catalog number either on the BP tab or the Items tab, and click the “Set as Default” button. The default catalog number marked as bold, and in the Items tab, a new column “Is Default” indicates the assigned status.
The default catalog number would appear by default in the then in marketing documents created for the given business partners:
Once a certain item is assigned with more that one catalog number per given BP, the first catalog number is automatically set as the default one. You can change this setting at any time.
