Line 1: Line 1:
 +Overriding a modifier allows modifier values to be pre-filled on derived products with different values than the base product. A derived product can only have modifiers overridden that are already linked to its base product. Overridden modifiers will be added when a derived product is created from a line item only if the modifier on that line item has a different value than the base product. Overridden modifiers can also be added or modified later by editing the derived product

 +
 +===== Creating a new derived product with overridden modifiers =====
 +
 +
 +
 +The process for creating new derived products is the same as the product setup or creation from line item methods.
 +
 +
 +
 +Overriding modifiers works almost identically to [[derived_product_variable_overriding|starting a new derived product from product setup]] and [[derived_product_derived_from_line_item|starting from a line item]].
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Example =====
 +
 +
 +
 +Bob, of Bob's Sign Shop, started making a new Derived Product named Real Estate Sign based on his Flatbed Prints product. As he was overriding variables, he decided he would also like to set the Rush modifier to be on by default. This would ensure that his Real Estate Signs would be finished quickly (with an added price) for his real estate customers who often needed those signs as soon as possible.
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Steps to follow =====
 +
 +
 +
 +Since Bob is already in Derived Product setup for his Real Estate Sign we will start with that Derived Product in edit mode prior to it being saved. (See the links above for more detailed instructions on creating a new derived product)
