Hi folks

it took me a while to understand the term or entity "product" here.

I look at the attributes or fields for this entity, i has 2-3 foreign keys

- account

- categoryItem

- contact

- opportunity

...

i conclude this is not a "product" as i understand in the sense of products in product catalogs or service catalogs (something is distributed as junk mail in your mailbox !).

This Zurmo so called "product" is something involving at least 4 entities above.

In data modelling, that is many-to-many (N-to-N) relationship.

I would call it a  deal or something like that, or a contract sale if it's done deal - not "product".

Certainly i'll rename this module for my Zurmo version !!!

Ray

i understand completely that user story.

My comment is about implementation or data modelling - that table/entity name "product" is misleading.

Please advise your developers - i'm here not to complain - but help improve your product.
