Microsoft Dynamics GP

Item Classes



Item classes are used in Microsoft Dynamics GP to group items that share certain characteristics, for example electronics or women's clothing.

Item classes together with the assigned items can be imported from Microsoft Dynamics GP to Sana to automatically build the main menu of the Sana webshop and catalog.

To manage item classes in Microsoft Dynamics GP click: Inventory > Setup > Item Class.

Use the Item Class Setup window to create and manage item classes.

Only item classes which are set as visible in webshop in Microsoft Dynamics GP can be imported to Sana. To manage visibility of item classes, select the necessary item class and at the top of the Item Class Setup window click: Additional > Sana Commerce. Use the Visible in Webshop checkbox to make an item class visible or invisible in the Sana webshop.

If you make the item class invisible, items assigned to the item class will be still visible. Only the item class becomes invisible in the Sana webshop.

In Microsoft Dynamics GP it is possible to create item classes of a single level. This means that you cannot create item classes with sub-classes. However, when item classes are imported to Sana and the main menu of the Sana webshop is created, you can manage webshop navigation in Sana Admin the way you need. For more information, see 'Navigation'.

In the Item Maintenance window use the Class ID field to assign the item to the appropriate item class.

When the catalog is ready in Microsoft Dynamics GP and items are assigned to the appropriate item classes, you can import them to Sana to automatically build webshop navigation and catalog. To import item classes from Microsoft Dynamics GP to Sana, open Sana Admin and click: Setup > ERP integration > Item categories.

For more information about how to import item classes from Microsoft Dynamics GP to Sana, see 'Item categories'.
