How to use tagging to Automatically Deactivate and Activate Items

DemandCaster is able to automatically activate and deactivate an item that is also activated or deactivated in your ERP using tags. To do so, you need an automated tag file set up as documented in the article How to quickly assign multiple tags to items? Thereafter, you must assign the tag that is used in your system to identify and then activate or deactivate item. Please note that DRP customers must assign the tag to the item location SKU.

Go to the Tags page

  1. Click on Utilities
  2. Then Tags

Enable a Tag to "Deactivate" Items

Click the radio button within the column "Deactivate" to assign the tag that will be used to identify deactivated items in your ERP system.

Upon making the assignment, as new deactivated items are tagged with the specific tag, they will be automatically deactivated in DemandCaster.

Enable a Tag to "Activate" Items

Click the radio button within the column "Activate" to assign the tag that will be used to identify re-activated items in your ERP system.

Upon making the assignment, items that are tagged with the specific tag will be automatically re-activated in DemandCaster.

Only one tag can be assigned at a time to the "Deactivate" or "Activate" function. If you select another tag, the previous tag will be de-selected automatically.

Please note that for items that have been previously assigned a tag that is now being used for this function, you will need to manually change their status  by following the steps in the article How to De-Activate, Re-Activate, Disable, and Enable Items. This process only works on a go forward basis after the tag is assigned to the "Activate" or "Deactivate" function.
