I have created an application in which a customer model has many
locations. Customers are then assigned to an order, and one of their
locations is also assigned to the order.
My issue comes if a locations is removed from the customer, that was
assigned to an order. I have added an active field to the locations
table, and when I “delete” the location, it sets it to false.
My question is how to do the find statements correctly. Should I be
overwriting the find method within the locations model to only return
active locations? Then if I do that, and the order.location method is
called, how do I get it to return the old location that is not active.
Am I going about this the right way or is there a more efficient way
to handle it?
