Business flags make it possible to configure the feature set of Plexus Suite which you want to make available for your users. You have the possibility to turn on and off particular features 

The business flags are available in the ${HOME}/.chemaxon/plexus-suite/ file in UNIX systems (or in the %USERPROFILE%\chemaxon\plexus-suite\ file in Windows). Switching on and off features is possible by setting their business flag properties to "true" or "false", respectively. The changes will take effect following the next log-in to Plexus Suite.

If a business flag of a feature has been turned off, the menus or toolbar elements belonging to this feature will not appear in the graphical user interface, e.g. the "Upload" button will be missing from the blue action bar on the left side of the application if the "FILE_UPLOAD" property is set to false. As a consequence, the users will not be able to import any *.mrv or *.sdf files into Plexus Suite.

Please note that setting a business flag to true, does not always mean that that feature will be available in Plexus Suite. The existence of a feature can depend on other things as well, such as whether a valid license can be found for a feature. For instance, creating a chart requires the Plexus Analysis license, so even when the CHARTING business flag is set to true, chart creation will not be available unless a valid Plexus Analysis can be found in your system.
