Product Status

Products can have 3 different status: Draft, Released and Published.
You create and edit products as Draft. In this state they are only visible by you. If you consider a product is ready for publication, you can release it. Once Released, the product will be reviewed by our database team and then Published. All published data records are then transferred to the PV*SOL database.

Product Version

When you create a new product, the initial version is "1".

When you edit a product, the resulting version depends on the initial product status:

Once a product in a particular version is published it is transferred to the PV*SOL database and may then be used by PV*SOL customers around the world. Therefore published products cannot be edited any more. You may, of course, edit and release a new version of the product.
