Transcription of video

Master data Information can be added to items, customers, vendors, even batch numbers, and bill of materials and stuff like that.

Let’s look at the specification on this Street Touring Bike.
We have a touring bike, and we could add specifications.

Specification is like attributes, it’s parameters, we want to add to this bike. For instance, we could add from a list. We could select different information codes.

In this case it could be a gear for the bike, or it could be colors, materials, etc.

After selecting the top label, select a specific list of value, information values, with all the different options that you’d like to add.

You select an option, and there’s a description to this option which will be transferred to the specific item. In this case, it’s a sixteen gear bike.

Finally, you can select value in the column value, if it’s specific for this item, meaning that it’s not a drop down list you would like in this case for the wheel diameter, you might want to have inch and millimeters, or whatever you like from the drop down, and add the specific value in the value column.

This can be used to make a description that is automatically generated like this wheel diameter twenty-nine inch.

So, for example, if I change the diameter here, it will automatically change the description for the specific specification.
