In BriteLines, products are set up in a product hierarchy based on parent-child relationships, meaning the child inherits data and properties from the parent.
For more information, read the product inheritance overview.
To add a new product, select Add Product, complete information in the Add Product dialog box, and then select Save Product.
The parent product:
- Defaults to Countrywide.
- Typically has states as child products, such as Missouri (MO) Auto.
- Are nested below their parent product in the product hierarchy.
- Inherit the overall template from the parent product through product inheritance.
- Contain information specific to the state, such as ZIP codes and rating.
Note: Once child products are built, you no longer change things in the parent product, but instead, you break the inheritance in the child products by overriding the parent product settings.
