Ability to copy standard settings across companies when releasing products

When releasing a new product, the setting of all the standard fields needed takes quite a bit of time.  It would be helpful if the settings could be entered into a table and copied to each of the entities the item is released into.  In a company with 15 legal entities and the same in...

Thank you for your feedback. We have implemented  different ways in which it is possible to copy standard settings across companies when releasing products:

-Product templates can be used to default fields on the released product. 

-Using retail, there are settings that can be defined per company and will be defaulted to all released products in the given company.

-Enabling the Engineering Change Management configuration key, the functionality of "release product structure" and "Release policies" becomes available. With release product structure, a product and its information such as the BOM or the route can be released. When released a Release policy can be applied, and in s similar way to the product template, it defaults information to the released product.

Sincerely,

Beatriz Nebot Gracia

It would be great if you were able to record a product's life cycle status based on a customer-defined status list. It would be useful, if this information was also able to be used in both the release function and as part of an approval workflow. You should be able to override this status by l...

The error messages are updated to be more user friendly. 

When you try to release several times the same product you will get the infolog "One or more products cannot be released. Validate the open product releases in the Open product releases form to identify the reason, and try again". In the Open product releases form, identify the release for the product released for a second or more time and you will find the error message "The product X cannot be released as it has already been released in the legal entity". 

Also when trying to release a variant through the + button on the released variants form when navigating from the released product master, the error message you will be given if you try to release a variant that was already released is the following "Product variant with the specified dimensions has already been created". 

Sincerely,

Beatriz Nebot Gracia,
