The Description field for products is Public and published in each Marketplace.
We need a "Internal Notes" field to keep track of whatever info about that product that doesn't fit elsewhere and should not get shared publicly...like quantity pricing breakdowns, Notes/Reminder for sales rep, common issue, etc.
This is a 3 line "memo" type feel much like the description field just below it
I note that my suggestion is slightly different to the "internal notes" suggested by Mark (Mark's idea being a good one too!) in that Xero enables the addition an arbitrary number of notes, each time stamped and recording the user who made the note.
As I commented in my "Add internal notes ..." topic merged into this one:
Xero has a hugely useful feature of "Add Note" for all (most) items in the application. You can add as many notes as you want and these all show up in the History listing of the item.
I suggest adding the same for DEAR for all entities (products, suppliers, purchases, sales etc).
The notes would be for internal use only and could display in the "Activity Logs" section (or a new notes section).
This would be *very* useful!!
i'd also like to see the feature for "sales prompt" so when i key in a product, it can come up with the prompt:
"use part number XYZ instead."
"also needs legs, part number ABC"
"need to advise customer this item cannot be resold"
I like Daniels idea, I actually started a new Feature request asking for an Activity Record on the Products record before finding this thread... My feature request below
