How do I set product defaults for new products?

An overview of how to set things like stocking unit, control type, cost method and tax code on new products by default.

Acctivate allows users to configure default values for some of required product fields.  These defaults are located in the Inventory Options section of Configuration Management, and can be accessed by going to File > Configuration Management > Inventory > Inventory Options.

We recommend that you select the most commonly used values.  Some of these product attributes (Stocking Unit, Control Type, or Cost Method) cannot be changed once you have entered transactions.Therefore, you may want to remove the default value and require users to carefully select the proper value for each new product.
