Classification Codes, Working with Product Categories

Products can be classified using product categories. Product categories are considered a classification code. Argenta comes loaded with common product categories to help you get started, but you can change them at any time. You can add or delete any product category by selecting Product and Vendor Orders or Classification Codes > Product Categories from the Argenta main menu on the left hand side of the screen.

 



View The Total Number Of Records
Above every list is a pink label that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. This is a quick and easy way to count list items.

Search The List
All classification code lists can be searched by the code’s title. Enter the title of the code you are looking for into the search field to search the list.

Export The List To Excel
Argenta contains many reports, charts, graphs, and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can work with your data anyway you want by exporting it to Excel. Every List in Argenta had an “Export List To Excel” button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.

To Add A Product Category
Click the “Add a New Product Category” button above the list. The “Add A New Product Category” window will come up…

 

 

Type a name for your product category and click the “Add This Product Category” button. The window will close and the new product category will display in the list.

To Remove A Product Category
In the product category list, click the corresponding “Delete” button to remove the product category from Argenta. Product categories that are already in use cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the product category because it has been used to classify a Product. If you still want to delete it, you can find the Products associated with it by filtering the Product list, reclassifying all associated Products, then trying again to delete it.
