After creating a Client Partner, you will be taken to the Partner Details view.
The details view shows two cards, General and Custom Units.
The General card provides the Name and Code of the Client Partner, as well as the current logo you have attached to the Client Partner.
To change any of these details choose the Edit Details button.
The card will move into edit mode, and you'll be able to update the Name and Code.
At any point you may select the Remove Logo button to remove the logo.
When there is no logo, you may upload a new one by choosing the upload logo button.
Browse a file on your computer, making sure you have obtained the necessary permissions to use the logo.
Client Partner logos are used throughout Consignly to help identify records relating to that Client Partner.
If the Client Partner moves Product of a unit that is not one of the standard Consignly-supported units, then you can create a Custom Unit for the Client Partner. This unit can then be used in the Products that are stored for that Client.
Custom Units that have been created for the Partner already will appear in the list. By default, Active units are shown. You may change the Status filter of the custom unit list to see other Unit Types that may have been deactivated previously.

Deactivating or Removing a Unit Type
You may deactivate a Unit Type at any point by selecting the Unit Type, and then selecting Deactivate from the action menu in the shoulder. Deactivated Unit Types may not be used in any new rates or product definitions.
If you wish to permanently remove a Unit Type, you can do so from the same action menu, however you can only remove a Unit Type if it is not in use anywhere else.

If your Client Partner supports GS1 labelling, then you may create a GS1 configuration to support generating SSCCs within given ranges provided by the Client Partner.
Find the GS1 Configuration card and choose Add Config.
The GS1 configuration card on a Client Partner in Consignly
To allow Consignly to generate SSCC labels, fill out the required fields in the General card. The GS1 company code is required, and the Member Organisation that issued the code must be selected.
Next, provide Consignly with the SSCC ranges that your client partner has allocated you.
It is necessary to know the extention digit of the range, as well as the starting number and ending number of the range.
You may add multiple ranges to the configuration. Consignly will issue SSCC numbers within the first range, and when that range is depleted, it will start issuing numbers in the next range, and so on and so forth.
When all ranges are depleted, it will not be possible to generate SSCC numbers for that client partner until another range is created.
