In Uphance all products, sales and production orders are assigned a season. For example, you can create a winter season and assign products like jackets, scarf, etc. to it.
Seasons aren't set in stone, meaning you can always switch a product's season.
Every product you add to Uphance must be assigned a season. If you don't, Uphance will randomly assign it to one.
For year-round products that aren't seasonal, you can create a generic season and assign them to it.
How to Add Seasons
To add a season to your account, navigate to Settings >> Seasons. Create the season by entering a name and a description (optional).
Once the season has been created, you can tweak the settings by hiding it, showing it in your showroom, limiting sale quantity, etc.
A few important things to note about Season settings:
How to Hide a Season
When you hide a season, it means you can't assign any product to it as it won't be visible anymore. If you've assigned products to it already, those products will be hidden as well.
To hide a season:
Navigate to Settings
Click on the edit icon (pencil) at the end of the row of the Season you want to hide
Click the Hidden checkbox
Scroll down and click the Update button.
You can unhide it at any time by deselecting the box.
In this example, the AW23 season has been hidden and so won't show up in the All Seasons filter.
If you choose to show your seasons in your Showroom, it implies they will be visible to B2B buyers who visit your showroom.
Limit Sale Quantities
This is where you regulate how products assigned to a season are picked for sales orders. Setting it to None means you can create a sales order for that product even if it is out of stock or unavailable.
But if set to Stock, it means sales can only be created if the product is in stock. The same applies to Available.
Grant Access to All Buyers
If you enable this feature, it means all buyers in your showroom can access products assigned to that season.
This allows you to automatically email your buyers when you add a new product to a particular season.
However, this feature is only available when you enable Show in showroom.
Once you are done, scroll down a bit and Update the season.
