Reasons for hiding an item
Over the course of your business, you'll have
items or services that you no longer sell, or a fixed
asset that you no longer own. You might think that
deleting these items will make your Item
List easier to manage. However, if you want to delete
an item, it can cause you to lose valuable historical
information about your business. For this reason,
better to hide the item in the list by
making it inactive.
You can reactivate (show) an item or see all items at any time.
To do this task
Go to the Lists menu and click Item List.
Double-click the item you want to hide.
In the Edit Item window, click Item is inactive.
