Data Assist insert and delete item question

Data Assist insert and delete item question

The site that I am building offers seasonal goods, each with their unique item numbers. They will also sometimes run out of an item and have to remove it from the store.

Right now, if an item is temporarily unavailable, my client would go to 'items detail' page and click on the delete button to remove the item from the store. Unfortunately, doing so also removes the item from the database.

When the item becomes available again, the information will have to be added to the database again. That can be a hassle as the information would have to be looked up from an outside source (Excel file, printout, etc.) in order to activate that item again.

It may be beyond the scope of your products, but is there a way to remove the item from the active store, but keep it in the database so it can be added later without having to enter all the information for that item? It would be great if you could disable the item in the store without that item being deleted from the product database, and added at another time just by inserting the unique item number with the rest of the information for that item populated through the information in the database.

Is that possible?
