Create Product automatically¶
This page explains how you can create products based on external shop data.
The shop page gives you the option to select several of the synchronized product data sets at once and import them as ASA2 products.
After the synchronization of the data is completed or when you open a shop page afterwards, the Browse data button is available.
This opens a tabular view of the shop data, which allows to browse the products of the shop in a comfortable way.
When you select one or more products, an import button appears in the upper left corner above the table. Using this button you can import the selected records into ASA2 products.
Before that, a confirmation dialog opens where you can also select categories and tags for the new products to be created.
After the data has been successfully imported and the ASA2 products have been created from it, they will appear in the overview of the products section.
When you create a new product (“ASA2 Products > Add New”), an import button is available if the selected shop has synchronized data.
After clicking on the import button, the table view opens to view the shop data. On the left in front of each data record is an import button, via which the respective product can be selected.
After clicking an import button in a product line, ASA2 automatically inserts the product data into the form. After that, the product only needs to be saved and it can be included on a web page as usual.
If you want to replace the product, you can click the import button on a product page again and select another product. ASA2 will then ask you if you want to overwrite the previous product.
You can decide whether the title of the previous product should also be overwritten. This can be helpful if you have previously entered a custom title that you want to keep for the new product.
