Your app articles are automatically updated when you synchronize your CSV or XLS file with our system
Product synchronization in all catalog modules
In the catalogue modules Shop, Price List and Product Catalogue it is now possible to synchronize CSV and XLS files containing your products or services with our system or your dashboard. As soon as you make changes in the CSV or XLS file, they will be automatically updated in your app.
Here's how you do it
For a better differentiation and identification of your articles, it is important that you add the field Article number to your products and services in the tab Collection Design under Advanced options. Then confirm with Save.
Information about the article number
Imported articles are identified on the basis of the article number. If an article number already exists, the article is updated on the basis of the new master data. If no article number is assigned to one of your articles, the system will ignore it. Articles that exist in the system but not in the CSV or XLS file will not be processed. Furthermore, deleting articles can only be done manually via the system or your dashboard. If an article is deleted in the CSV or XLS file because you no longer offer it, it will still be found in the app. Here you also have to delete the article manually. The article number itself does not have to be numeric.
Enable collection items synchronization
On the Collection items tab you will find the item collection items synchronisation. By clicking on the small i next to the name, you can display further information. To activate the synchronization, move the slider to YES.
For the synchronization to be successful, our system needs an origin URL where your CSV or XLS file is located. Your file could be located in a cloud service such as Dropbox or on your own server. Copy the entire URL and paste it into the filed Source URL.
You can use the drop-down field to specify whether the synchronization between our system and your CSV or XLS file should be done hourly or daily.
Once you have made all the settings, click on Save. The system will now ask you to publish your app again. After you have done this, our system will synchronize with your CSV or XLS file.
