If a product is imported from a data source to a website its status can be switched on/off from this data source automatically. It saves time since an administrator does not need to manage the same product both in a data source and in the backend of a website.
Also if the manual status state control toggle is switched on, the website system will ignore the product status change in the data source. Thus, an administrator can manually switch on/off a product status and this change will not be overwritten by the system during the next import from a data source.
Finally, If an administrator manually switches on/off a product status and the manual status state control toggle is switched off, the system automatically switches on the manual status state control toggle.
This extension is used in the backend only. The manual status state control toggle appears under the Main details tab while adding/editing a product.
