Editing Product Attributes

How to edit product information at an attribute level in Plytix

Product Attributes are the properties or fields that allows you to assign values to your products (e.g. ColorBrandDescriptionetc.). This helps you build out your specifications and other rich content. In this article, we will show you the different ways you can edit and update your product information at an attribute level. 

Edit attributes from the Product Overview

ℹ️ If you don't know how to create attributes, learn how to import them or create them directly within Plytix. 

 


Product Overview

There are a few ways you can edit product attributes from the Product Overview. You can either perform a bulk editing action or edit attributes in-table. 

Bulk Editing

If you need to update multiple products at the same time, this is the best way to do this. So when you are on the Product Overview page:

  1. Select the products you want to edit
  2. Click the "Edit" button that appears above the table

  3. Choose up to 3 different attributes to edit and input the new values

    bulk-edit-attributes
  4. Click "Save"

 

ℹ️ When editing Multiselect Attributes, you will be able to define whether you want to replace, remove, or add any options.

 

In-table Editing

The Product Overview also has in-table editing enabled so that you can work faster. This is great for on-the-fly changes. Almost all attribute types can be updated in the table with the exception of media attributes.

To do in-table editing: 

  1. Go to the product you want to edit
  2. Find the attribute you want to change and click on the table

    intable-editing
  3. Make the changes to the attribute
  4. Click "Enter" on your keyboard to save changes

 

💡 If you are editing any longer piece of content from within the Table View you can stretch the editing box by simply dragging the field so that working from within the Table View is made easy. 

 

💡When editing any HTML attribute from the Table View, you can even expand to a full screen right from the Overview to see the complete content.

Product Detail Page

Of course, you can also enter into a single product to edit the attributes of that product. 

To do this: 

  1. Find the product you want to edit in the Product Overview and click on the SKU to enter into the Product Detail View

  2. From this view you can browse through attributes by selecting your custom view of "Attribute Groups" on the top
  3. To edit an attribute, click on the "pencil" icon next to the attribute to enable editing
  4. Make the changes you want, then either press "Enter" or click on the "check" icon to temporarily save while you make other changes
  5. Click "Save Changes" at the top left to apply and save the changes permanently

 

💡 Find attributes quickly by using the attribute search bar.

 

💡 Enable the "Hide empty" field to hide empty attributes.

 

💡 Choose a two-column layout to see different attribute groups side-by-side to help improve translation and enrichment inputs
