Products included in the Core Concepts category are for Admin's of North Commerce stores.
The product page in the admin area of North Commerce displays your 10 latest products and will automatically sort your products based on status. The available product statuses are:
1. All 2. Published 3. Draft 4. Archive 5. Schedule 6. Trashed
All the product statuses in the North Commerce UI
All: Includes all of your products no matter the status
Published: These are the products that have been published and are currently live on your store
Draft: These are products that have begun the creation process but have not yet been published and made live on your store.
Archive: These orders are removed from your store but are not deleted. You will also see with "Trashed" none of our products are removed from the database to prevent any issues with previous orders.
We are considering adding a "Deletion Check" that will completely remove products from your database if they are not associated with any orders. This will prevent any unwanted data in your database but as of now that is not implemented and the status is just change and the product is not removed from the database.
Schedule: These are the products that will be published and made live on your site on some future date that you set. After the date you set has been come the status will automatically update to Published.
Trashed: A varying status of Archive as we continue to consider the best way to manage completely deleting products from the DB.
As you begin creating products for your store you will see some important product data at a glance in the product list view.

In the future we will have a "Collection Builder" feature which will allow you to create product collections based on product categories, tags, prices, total sold and other filtering options. These product collections will then be able to be rendered anywhere on your store for customers to see.
