Related Items

Substitutions are used to add similar or related products, like accessories or spare parts, and build relationships between the related products and the original product. These product relations are used for cross- and up-selling, or it can be also used to provide alternatives in case any of these products is out of stock.

Add related items to the item

In Microsoft Dynamics NAV open the Item Card and click: Related Information > Item > Substitutions. Use the Item Substitution Entry window to add related items to the item.
Field Description

Description When you add the related item, its description will be automatically shown.
Relation Type Enter the digital value of the relation type. It identifies how products relate to each other. Using Relation Type, you can create several groups of related items (up to four items in each group).

If more related items should be added, another group of items can be created using the Relation Type field. There is no limitation to the number of groups that can be created. The name of the relation will be automatically generated based on the number of the relation type that has been entered in NAV. The names of the related item groups can be changed using the In-site editor.
