Creating a New Expos Product

Expos products are defined similar to other products, but with a special product category and product type. The expos product category determines the generic ledger (GL) accounts necessary to track financial information when the Expo product is sold. The expos product type allows the Expos tab to display on the Products record, providing the location where additional information is collected for the expo product, such as floorplans, linked meetings, and so on.

Follow these steps to create an Expo product:

These instructions focus on how creating an expo product differs from creating a standard product. Therefore, configuration items that are the same for expos and basic products are not described in detail.
