Create/Edit/View Merchandise

This is the create/edit/view screen for Merchandise products.  See Concepts|Products for background information.

The fields are as follows:
Id - the ID of the product
Name - its name
Printed Name - the name that will be displayed when the invoice etc is printed. If omitted, then the Name will be used.
Selling Units - the units by which this is sold (eg Unit, Ampoule, Bottle, Box, etc). The available choices are set by the Administrator|Lookups|Units of Measure screen.
Type - this is used to set the Product Type - see Concepts|Products. If you are using product types, then you really need to set the type for every product.
Product types can be arbitrarily created by your administrator. These product types are distinct from product classes (Merchandise, Service, Medication). Instead, these can be used to group products according to discounts and tax types for instance. See Administration|Types|Product Type.
Pharmacy - this is only required if you use the HL7 facility where it is used the set a Pharmacy or Pharmacy Group for this product. Note that this can also be set via the Product Type and this may be more convenient if many products use the same pharmacy or pharmacy group.
Use only in Templates - if ticked, indicates that the product can only be use in charges and estimates via a Product Template.
Patient Identity - used to indicate that a Microchip, Pet Tag, or Rabies tag should be added to the patient when the product is charged.
Active - uncheck this box to deactivate the product

See Tabs for a description of the fields in the various tabs.
