Ability to mark products as "Seasonal" as well as "Discontinue"
This is more for reporting purposes, but would come in handy, especially for businesses that have thousands of products and 1/3rd are discontinued and 1/3rd are seasonal. We need a way to tell the difference.
Thanks for the suggestion. If it were purely for reporting purposes you could use on of the User Defined product fields and then write your custom report referencing that field. If you're not familiar with the User Defined fields, here is a screenshot of where they are in Setup and the Products pages - https://www.screencast.com/t/c1pn2l3Lx
There are a number of other fields that you may not be using that could also serve the purpose if you are already using all of the User Defined fields:
...or for a small amount of custom programming we could add the field for you.
I'd be interested to understand what kind of reporting you'd want affected by this seasonal flag. I get the concept of the flag certainly but not yet fully grasping what it would do for you.
If we went as far as adding a field just for this (or a date range, like we do with discounts) we should then consider if we want product uploads to your website(s) to take this into account, only uploading during their season, for example.
Let me know your thoughts.
