Disabling or enabling list items
You can disable list items that are not used in the business processes specific to your organization. For example, you may want to disable list items that are no longer being used. However, because you may have older records still referencing those items, you can't simply remove them — you should disable them instead.
In this case, disabled items will be shown in those object records but unavailable for selection. You can re-enable disabled list items when needed.
To disable or enable list items:
Navigate to the
Customization >[Module] > [Object Class] > Classification section where you want to disable or enable list items.
Select one or more items to disable, right-click the selected area, and choose Deactivate from the pop-up menu. To re-enable disabled items, choose Activate.
NOTE:For categories: Disabling or enabling a parent category does not automatically disable or enable its children. You should select each subcategory individually to disable or enable them as well.
