Deleting Products

MCB now allows you to delete products attached to orders/quotes.

Keep in mind that when you delete a product that is attached to a quote/order, that quote/order will be archived and locked. You will not be able to edit the locked quote/order, use the chat feature, mark payments, or change the quote/order status.

Here are some tips to use when deleting products.

Deleting products Don’ts:

Don’t delete products that are in a live presale.
