Partially Update Catalogue

Video: Fynd Platform - How To Update Product Attributes

How to access on Fynd Platform

In the earlier sections, you have learnt to create a single product as well as bulk products. Now, what if you wish to update the attributes (e.g. material, colour, weight, etc) of one or more products.

Manually browsing the products and changing their attributes is clearly not the solution. Therefore, Fynd Platform has an option of Partial Update. You can upload an excel or CSV file containing the product details along with the new attribute values.

How to update the attributes of one or more products?#

Let's update the images of the below product using the Partial Update feature. As you can see, this product has 3 images which needs to be replaced with the latest ones.

  1. In an excel file, you need to have 3 mandatory headers:

    • Item Code
    • Brand
    • Command


    Figure 2: Mandatory Headers

  1. Since you want to add 3 images, create a Media header in the excel. Assuming that your images are hosted on cloud, you just add those 3 image links in the excel. Therefore, add 2 more rows having the same Item Code, Brand and Update Command.

You can also update the attributes of multiple products at once. Let's say you want to update the images of your products. Similar to the above example, you write the Item Code, Brand and Command for all your products, and subsequently add the attribute column with their new values.

Let's say you want to update 3 images each for 3 products having item code BPK-1002, BPK-1003 and BPK-1004.
