How to Assign a Product Status in Sage X3

Every product you receive from a supplier must have a status before it can move to the next step in its journey (to the warehouse, out to another customer, etc.) Sage X3 makes this process easy, allowing your received products to move on more quickly and allowing you to accept multiple shipments in a shorter amount of time.


How a product is assigned a status upon its receipt is determined by many factors. The hierarchy goes from the generic to the specific - Stock Management Rules - Product Category - Product Site - Product.

Here's how to assign a product status in Sage X3. 

Stock Management Rules

It’s mandatory that a management rule exists for all movement transactions managed by the system. It’s essential to include the status necessary for each movement type (e.g., Stock Change, as seen in the chart below, ‘Q’ status isn’t one of the options when making a stock change, only ‘A’ or ‘R.’)

The Product Category – Receipt Tab

You can set the authorized statuses, sub-statuses, and the default status for each movement type of receipt. As with the stock management rules, this setup narrows down how the assignment is conducted on a product category level.
