Adding Products via Inventory Spreadsheet

In this article, we will walk through how to add a new product to your inventory via the MyTime spreadsheet. 

Things to know:

  • For imports, products are matched by name + category + SKU name. They must be
    entered in order for the data in that row to be recorded. These columns are labeled
    matcher and will be used to map, or match, the product on your sheet to the product that
    you already have in MyTime. If you change any of these fields of an existing product, it will create a new product. 
  • Radio buttons at the bottom of the page:
    • If Update existing inventory is selected, then existing SKUs will not be deleted if they are not on the import sheet
    • If Overwrite and replace inventory is selected, then existing SKUs will be deleted from inventory if they are not on the import sheet. For each product name on the import sheet, you must include the quantity of each SKU Name/SKU Number associated with that Product Name or else that SKU will be deleted from inventory.        17610465-7d18041a411593f1a7fe2991346b48df.png
  • If you edit details such as brand, SKU #, barcode, description, etc, and the "Overwrite and replace inventory" option is selected when importing - the edits will reflect at all locations.
