With Master Data Information, you can automatically create long descriptions and description-2 on the item card, or even merge the description.

Transcription of video

In my specifications, either on the information code or on the lower levels, I can define a value for my long description and my item description and they don’t have to be the same.

And basically, it’s a setup for how I want to merge information, codes, value, etc.

There will be a separate video for explaining that.

When I have added my value, I can setup if I want to merge my item description two or my item description that is done in the Master Data Information setup.

So, I can select here if I want to merge directly into item description two and basically, it means that if I change my value, for instance here, to 31 inches, when I get back to the item card, the description – description two will be updated with the 31 inches and the long item description as well.

So, it’s a way of auto merging descriptions on items that I can use for sales orders, shelves and stuff like that.
