Image convention should support multiple categories/description of items
Image Convention: Simplifying Image Assignment in Item Master
The "Image Convention" feature serves as a fundamental aspect for automating the assignment of item images in the Item Master. Currently, there are 14 basis options available, such as Barcode, Article, Category 1-6, and Description 1-6(Only one could be selected at once).
Users are required to upload images with names corresponding to the selected "Image Convention" basis to a designated folder on the cloud server. This allows the system to intelligently link the images to their respective items, both existing and new.
For instance, if a user wishes to assign images based on a specific category, say (Category 1: "Collar Shirts") to all items under "Article A," the following steps are taken:
Step 1: Select "Image Convention" for "Article A" as "Category 1."
Step 2: Upload the image with the name "Collar Shirts" to the designated folder on the cloud server.
Step 3: The system will automatically match the image file name with the "Category 1" name, seamlessly populating the image for those items.
By utilizing the "Image Convention" feature, users can efficiently manage and associate item images within the Item Master.
Use Case of client:
In item master, Client uses "Category 1" to define Style(say Half Shirt) & "Category 2" for Color(say red/blue/black)
All other categories and descriptions are also defined by client for easy identification of products
Client wishes to define and populate 3 images to different items based on possible combinations of "Category 1" and "Category 2", which could be:
Half Shirt - Red
Half Shirt - Blue
Half Shirt - Black
In Item Master, client has defined a UDF field in which they are putting the data above and want this UDF field to be present in "Image Convention" LOV
Presently, only one category or description could be selected for image convention
UDF fields are not present for selection in LOV of "Image Convention" basis
Normally, when this scenario happens, implementers use any unused category/description for "Image Convention" purpose in which they put data by concatenating multiple categories/description names
Above workaround is not possible for the client as all the Category and Description fields are already used by client
The requirement of client seems valid and as inquired with implementers, this is a common requirement from many clients, but they manage it via workaround as mentioned in third bullet point.
