Wish list for catalog items

Service catalog provides you with an option to save catalog items to your wish list and visit them later to complete the ordering process.

For example, let us say you wish to order a laptop of specific configuration and require to provide a list of software to be installed on it. Adding such items to your wish list, allows you to revisit them with complete information before proceeding to final checkout. Any partially entered data is also saved when you add items to your wish list.

Users with catalog_admin or admin role can enable/disable the wish list feature and configure the wish list cart for end users. By default, wish list is always disabled for a catalog.

To enable wish list feature for catalog end users, select the check box for Enable Wish List in the catalog record.

Wish list feature does not function if the property glide.ui.doctype is set to false.
