When you are dealing with more complex products that have different attributes and options the SKU that you need for stock management in OMS or your external warehousing system may need to be created dynamically as you choose the options on your screen
- Base SKU plus colour code
- Base SKU plus colour code plus size code
- Base SKU plus colour code plus size code plus decoration method (effects)
- Plus other combinations of the above
This is all controlled in the Company Database - so SKU can be set up by Supplier or Machine
THe Options are as follows:
1.) Override Incoming Product Sku
This will ignore the sku the order item is given from the retailer and use the sku on the product within the CPP instead.
2.) Override Sku with Print Size or Aspect Sku
(THIS OPTION CAN CURRENTLY ONLY BE ENABLED BY STAFF PLEASE EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org WITH YOUR GUID AND THAT YOU WANT THIS OPTION ENABLING TO USE THIS)
This requires "Override Incoming Product Sku" to be enabled on the product and this will do a check on the product coming from the retailer to see if it using Aspects or Print sizes and use the Sku from the selected one of those in place of the retailer specified Sku, Aspects Sku's are prioritised over Print Sizes and if neither are set it will default to the cpp product Sku.
3.) Concat Product Colour Sku
This when enabled will simply add the Sku of the chosen colour of any colour area onto the end of the product. This will happen after options 1 & 2 and concat with the skus after that point
4.) Format Sku
This allows you to format the SKU in a specific way and pull in any attribute or item parameter such as size or colour in whatever format you require this is done like so:
So this would turn the SKU into a combination of the item sku + item size + item colour + the value of the named attribute with dashes between them again this happens after options 1, 2 and 3 so the sku at this point would be whatever the result of the previous options created if they were enabled.
5.) Map Sku
Lastly you can apply a CSV map to the GUID which will change the sku you put into the from column into the sku you put into the to column and as before this will happen after the previous 4 options so if for some reason you had all 4 enabled you would have to map from whatever the result of those last 4 options is.
