We would like to automatically move our of stock and discontinued items to to another Department and Category. We do not wish to recode the department and category within the RMS and PAM as this will effect some of our existing reports.
The department and category would not be visible from our website menus, however the search would allow them to be found and also Google searches would enable our customers to see them.
The thought process is that when customers search for these items (either within the website search or from external engines) we can inform them that they are discontinued and offer another alternative, hopefully increasing sales.
Within NSC Sync we have set up the sync to automatically set both the product_departmentid and category_link to a new department and category. This all appears to work correctly, with the new department and category numbers being synced.
So finally to my question, the items are still in their original Department and Category, rather than the new ones. I assume that somewhere else in the sync has a setting as to which Department and Category the item is placed into - a pointer to this would be great!
