The Technical Specification View allows to display a configurable line-item in a data sheet alike view and parse quickly the values that have been configured already. For non-configurable line-items, such as product variants (in our notion classified products) the products will be shown by default in this view.
The content is represented in a text-based manner without any additional data that would prevent a fast copy paste for sending via mail and a quick check with the customer or other team members.
In order to consume the feature the user simply needs to click on the toolbar button representing the two views.
