    Creating Master Comments for a Configurable Item
    You can use Master Comment Maintenance (1.12) to record comments about a configurable item.
    Master comments can be used to add configuration descriptions. The configuration descriptions can be printed on documents such as sales quotes, sales orders, invoices, or packing lists.
    For a configurable item, the master comments can be defined with feature names to show feature options.
    Item master comments can be entered for multiple languages.
    Creating a Variant Supplier Item
    In the Enterprise Material Transfer (EMT) process, supplier item is the cross-reference to convert Primary Business Unit (PBU) SO line items into Secondary Business Unit (SBU) SO line items. Now you can use Supplier Item Maintenance (1.19) to create a variant supplier item.
    In Configurable Item Maintenance, make sure that the fields Variant Item-Site Record and Site Variable are selected correctly for the configurable item.
    Use Supplier Item Maintenance (1.19) to create a supplier-item relationship.
    Use Configuration Questionnaire to create a variant item. When the variant item is created, the variant supplier item is there as well.

    You can control whether rule assignment can be overwritten by question respondents.
    If the field Allow User Override is selected, the system allows the rule assignment to be overwritten when question respondents answer questions in the Questionnaire.
    You can use empty cells in rule table conditions; an empty cell in an IF clause means that any feature option is OK for the condition.
    Show Low-Level Questions
    Previously by default, no more than ten levels of questions could be displayed on the Questionnaire. Now by default, up to 100 levels of questions can be displayed.
    Always Reprice the Configuration
