material in active

Please advise how to make a material inactive for new customer orders.

We stopped producing this material two years ago. There is still a small amount of inventory on hand which weu2019re trying to sell off, but in the meantime we cannot accept any new customer orders.

The end users donu2019t always know whether a material is inactive u2013 we need a system message or status message to prevent end users accepting customer orders
