Sometimes you need to make a color unavailable, either because the color is discontinued or because you've made the decision not to carry it any more. But if you already have some slabs in that color in your inventory, you want to be able to allocate those existing slabs to Jobs - you just don't want people to order any more. You will want to rename the color until all existing slabs have been consumed, and then you can make the Color inactive. 

  1. First check to see if you have any slabs in the discontinued color already in your inventory. In this example, I'm going to discontinue Apuan, but I already have 226 square feet (5 slabs) that I want to be able to allocate to Jobs.
