Universal Containers uses an ERP as system of record (SOR) for its product data, and Sales Cloud and Revenue Cloud for its sales dat
a. The Product data must be synced with Salesforce so that sales representatives can add the products to their Opportunities and Quotes. As Products are deactivated within the ERP, they should no longer be available. Since Sales Cloud is the SOR for Opportunities and Revenue Cloud is the SOR for Quotes, the Solution Architect has been asked to come up with an archiving strategy that preserves Opportunity and Quote data related to these deactivated products m Salesforce for historical reference.
What should a Solution Architect recommend to manage the deactivation of the Products and archiving of the Saks data?
This way, you can preserve the historical data of your sales transactions related to the deactivated products without deleting them from Salesforce.You can also avoid syncing issues between your ERP and Salesforce by keeping the product status consistent1.
Deactivating a product in Salesforce means that it cannot be added to new opportunities or quotes, but it remains visible on existing ones1.You can also deactivate all related prices for that product at the same time by enabling a setting in Product Settings1.To mark an opportunity or quote as inactive, you can use a custom field or a workflow rule that changes its status based on certain criteria3.
