Edit 'active' field on Customer edit view

I've imported a bunch of customers from a CSV file, without troubles. Most of them had the 'active' field set to False.

Once the import done, when I filter the customer list to show only customers which are not 'active', I get results, but in the list view, no name is showed.

Moreover, I don't see the way to edit the field 'active' of a customer in the edit view.

Any help will be appreciated!


Which are the fields you had in your CSV file while importing?

When active=False names will not be available in the list view. To edit the active field open the customer form view and the active field is in the "Sales&Purchases" tab of the form view.


That was quite simple finally, thanks for your help!
