Recently the item rename function has been blocked. This feature is used widely by customers to provide a product life-cycle management option otherwise unavailable in Supply Chain Management.

The item setup may be incorrect therefore we need the function to allow the user to correct it after inventory transactions exist.

Need this back, it's a huge problem that there's no item rename functionality in Dynamics!!

There's also no good way to retire items (de-activate). Having to rely on "stopping" items in default order settings is not a good solution. There should be a category built into the released product which allows an item within a legal entity to be deactivated such that the item cannot be used going forward. This should carry through to all major places where an item can be used.

We are preparing to upgrade from AX2012 to D365 and we see this as a major concern. Our product numbers are controlled in our PLM system. If a user makes a mistake at creation of a product in AX and the mistake is in a field on the item that cannot be changed once transactions occur, we will rename the existing number by adding "ZZ" as a prefix so that it goes to the bottom of the list and then create a new record for the part number using the desired/correct product number so that both of our systems (PLM & ERP) are in sync. This happens primarily if the incorrect model group is selected, if we should have created a product master, but created a product, or if we need to modify the tracking dimensions. Either provide work arounds for those issues or bring this back. We will be actively working with our partner to solution this as we kick off our upgrade. I see it is under review, so I hope it gets resolved before our GO Live. Thank you!

Dear Microsoft,

We have used this functions many times to rename items with transactions without issue and avoid any data corruption. An error is required when entering the item number when creating an item or making changes in business requirements.

Note: Some users create the item with space or incorrect information and need to rename it without deleting the items

We appreciate your understanding and we need to update the feature in the new release without any change in performance and avoid any current and future data corruption

Yes, I agree, this is a must have functionality. Errors can happen. We should be able to fix them. Please bring this back ASAP and not on long term road map.

R

Agree - We absolutely need to have this function back!
We need a method to correct mistakes, the response 'just don't make mistakes' is not good enough.

Thank you Ryner Rolinski for bringing that up.
We also need that functionality back. Some items have spaces at the end of the item number. In some companies that were corrected and in some not and we run into several issues because of that.

Ou upgrade from AX 2012 to D365 depends on the "rename key" functionality.
We are switching from products to product masters with configurations. Our case is to rename the exiting item numbers to 1234_old and create new product masters as 1234 This will keep continuity with long term customers, quote, marketing material etc. We cannot continue on without this functionality.
