The current D365 Retail Assortment functionality enables the User to specify the criteria in which products will be sent from D365 to the Channel Databases for Retail Channels.

The current filter criteria are limited to Product Category and Item ID.

A product may belong to a certain category but has a certain Product Lifecycle Status which means it shouldn't be sent to the store channel (yet). For example, it's being purchased but it's not available for sale yet, so shouldn't be "discoverable" on the mPOS.

To save having to manage Assortments at such a fine level of detail, it would be good to add Product Lifecycle Status as a filter to the Assortments screen, so that even if a product exists in the category that is assorted to a channel, it wouldn't exist until it reached a certain lifecycle status. e.g. Sales Active.

Thank you for your suggestion.  Our product team will continue to monitor interest in this feature and consider it for future versions.




Good idea!
As as workaround, you can make D365 X++ extension, that will mark item as 'Blocked for sale' in POS, while Lifecycle status is not valid for sale. Then item will still be in assortment, but POS will not sell it.
