Once an item has been sold there are two ways it can be unpublished from Autogate.
For batch feed dealers:
For dealers who are feeding inventory from their Dealer Management System (DMS) into AutoGate, the status of their stock will be controlled and sourced from the DMS. To remove an item, you must update the item status in their DMS (whether it be sold or withdrawn) for it to be then fed through to update AutoGate.
Note: If an item is updated in AutoGate directly, the next time your DMS sends through a feed, any changes that were made will be overwritten according to what we are being sent. This is why it is important that any updates are made at the source, the DMS.
Once unpublished, the item will no longer be advertised online.
For manually added vehicles:
For dealers who are AutoGate independent, or manually adding items into AutoGate, the status of your stock is controlled and sourced only from AutoGate. To remove an item, all you need to do is mark the item as Sold or Withdrawn in the inventory details screen, which will take down the ad.
You can do this by following the steps below,
1. Click on the "Inventory" menu option,
2. Click on the stock item you would like to move to sold,
3. Click on either 'mark as sold' or 'mark as withdrawn' to complete the process.
