When using the Product List feature, custom records are used to store and manage product lists for each Customer. These custom records are accessed from the custom SuiteCommerce Extensions tab of the Customer record at Lists > Relationships > Customers > [customer record]. The Custom record components are installed as a separate bundle, Reference Product Lists Records. For detailed information on installing this bundle, see Install Your Commerce Web Store Applications.
The Reference Product Lists Records bundle is required for the Elbrus release of SuiteCommerce Advanced even if Product Lists records are not leveraged for your implementation.
The following custom record components are added on installation of the bundle:
You can customize these records as needed. For detailed information on working with custom records, see the help topic SuiteBuilder (Customization).
If the Product List Custom Record bundle is not installed, Product Lists are not available in the Product Lists menu of My Account and errors are received when a user attempts to add an Item to a Product List within ShopFlow.
SuiteCommerce Extensions Subtab
From the SuiteCommerce Extensions > Product Lists Subtab on the Customer Record you can manage Product Lists. You can drill down into each List and modify list attributes or modify Item attributes as needed.
Generally, these records are intended to store and display data gathered from the web store frontend and in most cases should not be edited directly.
Note the following:
Editing Product List attributes modifies that list for the current customer only, even if the List is a predefined template. The procedures to modify available predefined template attributes for all users depends on the version of SCA you are implementing. For details, see Wishlist Subtab.
Also, after a predefined template is modified or an item is added to a predefined product list in a Customer record, the existing template attributes take precedence over the corresponding predefined template attributes in the configuration file.
For example, to change the Christmas list name to Christmas 2014 for the Customer record in this example, drill down into the Christmas list field and change the name field to Christmas 2014. Similarly, to change the My List list predefined template name for the current Customer only, drill down into the My List record and change the name field as needed. To change the My List record name attribute for all users, edit the
name parameter for that template in the configuration file.
Predefined templates are not intended to be modified on a per customer basis. To modify predefined templates, you should always edit the attributes in the configuration file to ensure changes are available for all customers.
The scope attribute for a Product List is not supported by default in the ShopFlow or My Account application frontend. Changing this setting has no impact.
The Item Options field on the Product Lists Items record reflects selected item options by the user. It is not intended to be directly edited. For example, for gift certificates, the recipient email and address are stored in this field.
