Overview


This section outlines the process of creating a simple product. This article is not intended to demonstrate every feature of Site Flow's Product creation process. Rather, it is meant to show the core moving parts required to create a new product.


There are three parts to the creation of a product: Product Details (outlined on this page), Components, and Workplan. You must complete all three parts to save a product.

Note: The SKU creation process is explained in detail in the SKU article.
