Can you archive a variant? We do not want to delete the variants for reporting purposes, but specific variants are no longer available.
Do you want to hide it on the storefront instead of showing that variant as out of stock?
Hi @LLCAMP ,
No, you can't disable or archive specific variants, this can only be done on the whole product.
What you can do with variants is zero them out, in that case customers will see it as unavailable. If you don't want to display them on your storefront you could try to filter variants which has 0 qty on our PDP page (coding required). Such approach isn't used very commonly, but if you want to hide unavailable variants so your customers can't see them, such approach should work.
@Shopify this is a pretty basic thing and could be coded in. Variants often end up getting changed by manufacturers and now we have a website full out outdated info. Enable us to archive variants please!
Agreed!! I've been wanting this capability for years, especially with the excruciating supply issues in apparel etc. @Shopify please add this to your next smattering of updates for Admin!
Hoping Shopify sees this again. So frustrating to have things showing as out of stock just so we can keep proper accounting reports available (as required by the government).
Bumping this up. Vendors change products all the time and our product offering is getting pretty messy. Makes us not want to use variants, but then we have a crazy number of eaches of products!
