Updating Product Name, Brand or Category using CSV Files (Ingest Data)

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

Things to know: 

The setting "Allow exporting inventory in ingest data format" must be enabled in order to export your inventory data in a zip file format to be used 

To update a product's name, brand, and category:

  1. Navigate to POS > Inventory
  2. Export your inventory by clicking the Export link at the bottom right of the page
  3. The inventory data will be downloaded in a zip file. In that file, locate and open the inventory_products sheet:69FDC5C8-145F-4BEC-A571-64BDCEA176A7.jpeg
    • On this sheet, you can add or edit the data in the following columns:
      • product_id - This is the external ID that can be located on your product UI
      • name
      • brand
      • category
      • vendor
  4. Once you have made changes to the product's name, brand, and/or category, download the sheets as a CSV file
  5. On the Inventory page, click Import
  6. On the Import Inventory page, read the instructions and then click "Upload File Here
  7. Select the CSV file from the file manager and then click the Import button 
  8. You will then be directed to the Ingest Data Processed batch page, with the file located at the top
  9. Refresh the page until it is completed. When completed, the file will be assigned an end time and the status will be changed to Finished 

Congratulations! You have successfully changed your product's name, brand, or category using Ingest Data. You can navigate to POS > Inventory to view the changes.
