If required, you can select a concentration range to which the changes should be applied. For example, Original Item could be Lemon 5 Fold Super, Replacement Item could be Lemon 5 Fold Regular, concentration range could be 10 – 20%. This targets the change at formulations containing between 10% and 20% Lemon 5 Fold Super.

The Composition Version Comment field will allow users to add reasons for the global change, as an aid to traceability and formulation control.

The composition version comment will be applied to all modified items. You can see the composition version comment in the composition tab of View a Formulation or View a Raw Material, and also in ‘View Previous Versions of a Composition’.

In addition, the targets of the composition changes can be further specified in the Compositions to Modify panel. These include the ability to focus the change on a single formulation or range of formulations, to focus on Raw Materials or Formulations, and to focus the change on a specified Item Class.

When performing this change the version numbers of the compositions are incremented automatically. The original formulation becomes outdated and the modified formulation becomes the current version. As with other formulation composition changes, the outdated version is retained in the application and can be seen using ‘View Previous Versions of a Composition’
