Item Description

The item description can be added both in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and the Sana Commerce backoffice. If the product description is present in the Sana Commerce backoffice, it will overwrite the item description from Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The difference is that the catalog manager in the Sana Commerce backoffice provides an HTML editor for the better text enrichment. Microsoft Dynamics NAV supports only plain text. The core item data like title, price and visibility are all managed in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
More information about how to add product description in the Sana Commerce backoffice can be found here.
On the Item card the item description can be managed:

Step 1: Choose the item and then click: Related Information -> Item -> Extended Texts:

Adding an Item Description

Step 2: Set the language code if you want to create a language-specific description.

Step 3: Use the start and end dates to determine when the item description should be visible on the frontend.

Step 4: Activate the 'Visible in Webshop' option under the 'Sales' fast tab to make the item description visible on the frontend.

Step 5: Click 'Refresh site cache' in the Sana Commerce backoffice after the item description has been added or changed.
