Facets (stored in StorePorter as custom fields) can be added to Products and Families one-by-one during edits via the Custom tab. Editing large volumes of facet content is much more efficient to do via export/import. This article primarily covers this strategy of exporting data, editing in a spreadsheet, then re-importing. It's important that at least one product have a representative set of facets applied prior to the initial export so the export process can build a pre-formatted spreadsheet with appropriate columns. Our examples for this article assume a single facet called Collection.
Select a Product and click Edit. Select the Custom tab and click Add to add a facet. Call facet 'Collection' and assign a proper value to the Text field.
If this tab is not available it can be activated from Tools>Options>Data/Sync>Show custom fields.
- Export a product template to a file you can edit in Google Sheets or Excel using the attached facetExport.scp script. (For information on running scripts, click here.)
- Edit the File and add any facets to the FACETCOLLECTION column next to the product. You can add multiple facets by using the PIPE(|) on most keyboards it is on the key above the enter key (SHIFT) "\" to seperate the values.
- Import the file using Import>Product/Family Custom Fields. Once the file is Imported the facets will be added to the products.
