Edit your products

Catalog Manager gives you four options for editing your products:

+Editing individual products

To edit existing products one at a time:

  1. In Catalog Manager, click the Products tab.
  2. Click Manage Products under the Products tab.
  3. Using the "View table" drop-down menu, select the table that the product you wish to edit has been added to.
  4. Locate the product you wish to edit in the product table, and click its linked product ID.
  5. Edit the product information.
  6. Click Save.

To edit a single product, click its linked product ID

+Editing selected products using the "Edit Selected" option

The "Edit Selected" option in Catalog Manager is designed to save you time, by letting you make the same changes to multiple products at the same time, in just a couple of clicks.

For example, if you'd like to apply a discount to a few of the products in the same table, you may do this by selecting these products using the checkboxes, clicking "Edit Selected," and making edits to the discount attribute using the "Edit Selected Products" screen.

The "Edit Selected" button is disabled until one or more products are selected using the product checkboxes located in the product table column to the left of the ID column. The "Edit Selected" option can only be used for editing products in individual tables, and will be disabled if "all-tables" is selected.

Use product checkboxes to select products to edit using the Edit Selected option

Updating multiple products in a table using the "Edit Selected" option

  1. In Catalog Manager, click the Products tab.
  2. Click Manage Products under the Products tab.
  3. Using the "View table" drop-down menu, select the table that the products you wish to edit have been added to.
  4. Select the products you wish to edit by selecting their product checkboxes. This will enable the "Edit Selected" button.
  5. Click Edit Selected. You'll be taken to the "Edit Selected Products" page, which lists available product attributes that may be modified.
  6. Select the attributes you wish to modify by selecting the attribute checkboxes.
  7. Update the attribute information.
  8. Click Apply Changes.
  9. Click Apply Changes button in the confirmation pop-up to confirm your changes.

Changes made to attributes on the Edit Selected Products page will be applied to all of the products you selected using the product checkboxes on the Manage Products page

Updating all items in a table using the "Edit Selected" option

If you wish to make the same changes to all items in a table, you can quickly select all items in a table by doing the following:

  1. In Catalog Manager, click the Products tab.
  2. Click Manage Products under the Products tab.
  3. Using the "View table" drop-down menu, select the table that the products you wish to edit have been added to.
  4. Click the checkbox toggle located in the blue column header row. This toggle is located in the column to the left of the ID column.
  5. Once you've selected the checkbox toggle, you'll see the following message immediately below the blue column header row: "You have selected ## items. Select all items in this table?" Click Select all items in this table? to select all items in the table. (Note: If you don't click this link, only the products listed on the current page of the table will be selected, as indicated by the number of products displayed in the "You have selected ## items" message. For example, if your table has 200 products, but only 25 are displayed per page, then only the 25 displayed products would be selected until the "Select all items in this table?" link is clicked.)
  6. Click Edit Selected.
  7. Follow steps 6-9 above.

+Editing all products displayed onscreen, using the "Edit All" option

The "Edit All" option replaces the former "Edit These Items" option, letting you open all products displayed onscreen for editing. For example, if your table is set to display 25 products per page, then clicking the "Edit All" button would open all 25 of these products for editing. Unlike the "Edit Selected" option, the "Edit All" option allows you to make individual attribute changes per product listed. The "Edit All" option may be a more efficient editing option than editing products one at a time in cases where multiple products in a table require different attribute changes.

For example, if ten products in a table need updates to different attributes, you can save time by opening all of these products for editing, making only the changes needed for each product and saving all of the changes at the same time, rather than opening each product for editing one at a time, and making and saving changes to these products one at a time.

Click the Edit All button to open all products displayed onscreen for editing

+Editing products using a spreadsheet upload

Products may also be edited by downloading a table spreadsheet, making your desired changes, and uploading the updated spreadsheet using the Upload/Download tab. To learn how to upload and download spreadsheets, please see our Upload/Download help page.
