Set up product packages
Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack
A product package is a group of products that are ordered from a supplier. Packages can help you create purchase orders, because you do not have to select items individually. Instead, you can select a package that includes the items. Order lines are updated automatically when the items in a package are changed.
The same item can be included in various packages for one or more vendors. After you add a package to a purchase order, you cannot remove a product from the order line if that product is part of a package. Instead you must remove the entire package and add the products to the purchase order individually.
Click Retail > Setup > Replenishment > Product packages.
In the Packages form, click New to create a new package.
Enter a package number and a description.
Select the vendor that supplies the products in the package. This field is used to filter the list of available packages. To limit the availability of this package to a specific vendor, you can select the vendor account. Otherwise you can leave this field blank.
On the Line details FastTab, click Add to add a product to the package, and then enter settings for the new product.
To add groups of products to the package at the same time, follow these steps:
Click Add products at the top of the form.
In the Add products form, select the products to add to the package.
You can filter the list of products by selecting a category hierarchy. You can then select all products that are assigned to a specific category, and add those products to the package.
Enter settings for the new products.
