About Export & Import Options Values

The product option created above needs to be binded/associated with corresponding values, known as option values. Through exporting, existing option values can be viewed, edits can be performed and new values can be added.

1. Export Process

To download, click on the hamburger menu, select ‘Import Export’ then click ‘Export’ and select ‘Option Values’ from the provided options list. The following information is required to be submitted to download the .csv file:

1.1 Content Tab

This tab has following information prompted to download a .csv:

  • Language: We provide you a content section to download ‘options values’ in multiple languages as added by admin in the system. For instance if you want to save content in the English language simply select English and submit. Similarly for other languages follow the above process with respective languages. 
  • Understanding Sequence Of Downloaded .csv: Open exported .csv file from your downloads folder. Once a file is accessed, data can be viewed in the following sequence:
    1. Option Value Identifier*: User defined unique identifier for the Option value. This works as a unique key for the system to identify a particular Option value.
    2. Option Identifier*: User defined unique identifier for the option. This field value needs to be the same as the ‘Option Identifier’ defined in the Options Content sheet.
    3. Option Value*: User defined value for the Option.
    4. Display Order: When an option has multiple option values then this field defines the order of display of the option value. If you are unsure about this field add display order as '1'.
    5. Lastly, save the prepared content file into your document folder.

2. Import Process

The process to import has some prerequisites to follow. For ‘Content’ once required information is added/edited, double check your data and format of file in case you have opted to create your own .csv file. Check the file for formatted headers and columns so that mandatory fields cannot be left blank. 

2.1 Content Data

Click on the hamburger menu on the left, select ‘Import Export’, click ‘Import’, from the left hand menu, select ‘Import’  select option 'Options Values’. Upon click, the following modular ‘Import Instructions’ tab will appear where information is displayed into various tabs:

  1. Instructions: On this tab, instructions about importing ‘Option Values’ are displayed. We recommend a thorough reading of instructions to avoid uploading errors. 
  2. Content: On this tab, the following fields are displayed to import data:
    • Select File To Upload: Click on ‘Browse File’, locate the file, click ‘Open’ and then ‘Submit’.

The ‘Data Imported/Updated Successfully’ message will be displayed when the file is uploaded within the system. Exit the section and congratulations you have successfully uploaded/updated newly added data into the system.

In case of any discrepancies found, an error message is displayed and a ‘Log File’ will be automatically generated. Check your ‘Downloads’ folder to go through the generated ‘log file’, that is marked or highlighted for errors.

Once corrections are made, try to re-import the file following the same import process above. In case a problem persists, contact team Growcer.
