In the article, we will walk through the steps to update your inventory product name, brand and category using ingest data.

  1. Navigate to POS > Inventory
  2. Export your inventory and locate the following 3 spreadsheets or create new spreadsheets and rename them to:
    • inventory_products - This sheet should include:
      • product_id - This is the external ID that can be located on your product UI
      • name
      • brand
      • category
      • vendor
    • inventory_manifest - This sheet should include:
      • inventory_products.csv
      • type - products                                             mceclip0.png
    • batch_manifest - This sheet should include the folder with the CSV sheets to be uploaded and the type (Please note that including the batch manifest is optional)                                         mceclip4.png
  3. Download the Excel sheets as a CSV file
  4. Go to your download folder and create a new folder called "inventory"
  5. Cut and paste the inventory_products.csv and the inventory_manifest.csv sheets into the "inventory" folder
  6. Create your zip file:
    • From your download folder, highlight the "inventory" folder and the batch manifest sheet or right-click on the folder only
    • Right-click one of the files and click "Add to Archive" or "Compress" depending on your device                                                                                          zip_file.png
    • When the Archive Name and Parameter dialog box appears, change the archive format to "zip" and rename the archive to inventory_(date).zip mceclip5.png
