The order of application of operations
Depending on the task, you can change the order of applying operations, for example, first apply formulas that change the data to suit your requirements, and then apply the markup operation.
By default, the system is configured for the optimal order of applying operations, so you should change the settings only when you understand the process of the system, that is, if necessary. To change the order in which an operation is applied, drag the desired operation up or down with the mouse.

If the search for a manufacturer is disabled (this operation is removed from the list of operations), then the search will be performed only by an exact match of the manufacturer's name from the Manufacturer field (if it is loaded from the price list) in the manufacturers directory.
Allows you to understand whether the product is in stock or not. Since availability is indicated individually for different suppliers in the price list, you can also individually configure the definition of its availability for each price list.
