Bulk Product Update

Have more questions? Submit a request


Configio's Bulk Product Update feature enables you to simultaneously make Product attribute changes to multiple Products. For example, if you wanted to update the Online End and the Purchase End Dates on all of your Merchandise Products, you could use the Bulk Product Update feature instead of making changes on each individual Product. The feature is available on the Advanced Product Search screen to make changes on all Products returned as search results. 

Important Note: This is a powerful feature. Please take care when using it. While it enables you to update the attributes on your Products efficiently, incautious use could create undesirable results.

Another Important Note: When updating individual Products via the Edit Product screen, the System does some checks to make sure that the updates make sense. For example, it will disallow a Start Date to be after an End Date. Bulk Product Update is an advanced user feature that does not perform these checks, and so please be diligent in ensuring that your updates make sense.

There are some options to consider. If there are Master Products in the Search Results, you can choose to include their variations in the Updates. If you choose not to include them, only the Master will get updated, and it's Variations will not. If there are multiple pages of Search Results, you can choose to include all results. If you choose not to include them, then only the currently selected page will get the update. When you are ready, click the Update Products button.

There will be a modal to confirm that you would like to make the updates. When you are ready, click the "Confirm Bulk Update" button. You will see an information modal, stating that the request has been queued, and that you will receive an email message when the update has finished.

After the System has finished processing the update, you will receive an email message notifying you of the change.
