Configuring Product Classes.

File > Configuration Management > Inventory > Product Class

Assigning a Product Class to products in a great way to distinguish between one group of products and another. Placing products into different classes will help simplify inventory procedures such as inventory counts and reorders, as well as narrowing report results and capturing Cost of Goods Sold into unique GL accounts. Product classes are managed in the Configuration Manager.
