Matrix Items

Matrix Items
The Matrix Item module allows users to create and manage items that have multiple dimensions, such as clothing, shoes, etc.  The OpSuite Matrix module supports items with up to three dimensions (i.e. size, color, material, or width, length, color). Dimensions can be set up and maintained by the user by using Item Tags, so the options and combinations are almost endless.
Matrix Item Module
Matrix Items are located within the Inventory module of OpSuite 5.  When selected, a lookup page, identical to those throughout OpSuite will open.

To create a new matrix item, select New Matrix Item from the lookup page.  Begin by entering your standard item information, such as the main sku, description, location group, department and category, etc.  
**Note if your items going to be put in a Web store you must put a check mark in #10, listed below.  You will not be able to go back once saved .

Next you will select how the sku and description are generated, along with the locations this item will be active at.
Skus can be generated using incremental numbering or you can use your Matrix item sku, followed by the dimension codes.  You can choose to have each section separated, or stay together. 
Description generation is similar to sku generation.  You will choose the order you want the dimension descriptions or codes displayed. 
Once complete, select Save. 

 Once saved, you can select your dimensions, or the variables to   your item.  The dimensions are created within Item Master Tags,   and marked as a Matrix Tag.  In this example, we are creating Ladies Fall Shirts, so we have chosen Ladies Shirt Sizes and Fall Colors. 
As you select your dimensions, the matrix table will start to form below. 

On the matrix grid, select the rows and columns, or individual cells you want to create.  In this instance, we only want to created Ladies Fall Shirts for the Ladies sizes SM - XL , and in Fall colors of Orange, Plum and Brown. 
To select all dimensions, simply click Select All. 
Once you have selected the dimensions to create, you will need to Build the items.  The number next to Build Items indicates how many items will be created.   
Now that your items have been created, the matrix grid will show the each item’s sku, and will default to Item Edit mode.  Here you will be able to set sale prices and dates, update the cost or price, as well as view the quantity on hand and on order.
Here we am changing the Price from the original $35.00, to $37.00, on XL sizes only , which will leave the SM through LG the original price.  After each change, remember to hit Save the the changes take effect. 

 The items can also be viewed in a table to show all information on the items.  To view the table, click Component Items.  This will list each item, along with the quantities, cost and prices.
 From this view, you can also edit each row by selecting the edit button next to the sku. 

 Once the matrix item has been created, you can come back and edit all the items at once from the lookup page.  To edit an in   individual matrix item, simply look the item up in the Items section of the Inventory module, and select edit as you would all   other items.
