Import Products Tabs from Spreadsheet:

You can reduce the process of entering the option information for Product Tabs. Use the "Import Product Tabs from Spreadsheet" feature to acquire the custom fields for products from your company's spreadsheet

NOTE: If you are working with a CSV file, you can use Excel to turn it into an ".xls" file to be imported.

Proceed as Follows:

TIP: To see the proper format of a Product Tabs spreadsheet, manually add a few Product Tabs to your products in the "My Products" section, and then export the data to an Excel file by going to "Import / Export - > Export Product Tabs to Spreadsheet".

For details about each of the importable fields and their proper format, please review the Product Tabs Import Fields section further below.

Click on the "My Products" icon to display the "Product-Tree". Select "Import/Export" from the top menu bar, and choose "Import Product Tabs from Spreadsheet". Click on the "Browse" button and select the import file (.xls) from your computer; the corresponding data fields from your spreadsheet will appear on the left-panel. On the right panel are the FORTUNE3 fields. One by one, click to highlight the imported field from your spreadsheet; locate its compatible custom field on the right-panel and highlight it with a click.

Click on the "Match Fields" button. Once you finish matching all of the fields, click on "Import".

If you had previously matched the fields from this spreadsheet and clicked on Save Selection and saved the selection file (.f3s), click on Load Selection and select the .f3s file.

All of the Product Tabs will automatically be attached to their respective products (based on the SKU).

If you plan on importing the spreadsheet again in the future and would like to avoid matching up the fields every time before importing, click on "Save Selection" once all fields are matched and save the .f3s file in a destination on your PC. You will later be able to click on "Load Selection" and browse for the saved .f3s file to save time on future imports.

Once you finish matching all of the fields, click on "Import". Once the import is complete, you will be given confirmation of what was imported properly or warnings about any errors that occurred during the import. You will also be given the option to view one ( 1 ) or two ( 2 ) log files. If there were any errors during your import, you will initially be shown an error log that displays which category or categories had the error(s), and what the errors were during the import. If you cannot figure out what the errors mean or how to fix them, please copy the errors and contact FORTUNE3 Customer Support with the details. Once you close the error log, the successful import log will be shown containing details of what was imported properly. If no errors occurred during the import, you will ONLY be shown the successful import log containing details of what was imported properly.

NOTE: The system will not import duplicate Product Tabs within the same Product. Based on the SKU and Tab Caption, it will replace the existing information instead.
