I am in wholesaling business and our manufacturers create new "collections" or product releases that are seasonal by nature. We still want to be able to see the orders (historical) of that include previous active products so deleting would not be good. Is their a way or feature that would allow items in the catalog to be marked as active or inactive ?

    Hey there Blair -

    Not at this point, but we do have some plans for "archiving" of this nature in the future. In the meantime, one workaround is to create a category of "inactive items" and just drag these items into there to preserve their history and yet still hive them off from the main catalog.

    Hope that helps!

    No problems Blaire - I've put you in our CRM to be notified when archiving comes out.

    Hey Josh - Do you mean for inactive variants? If so - we don't really have a great solution for this at this point, so you'd need to remove them, or could possibly include (INACTIVE) in the variant name when you upload it.
