Channel Overview

You can view and access all the channels in your account from the channel overview. To get to the channel overview, click on the "Channels" tab in the top navigation menu.

From here you can: 

  1. Create a new channel
  2. Search and filter by channel type
  3. Change the status of channels 
  4. Delete channels



Live Outputs

Outputs are ways to share your product data outside of Plytix. Your total count of Live Outputs is based on the number of channels you have processed.

This means that whenever a channel is processed for the first time (whether through manual or scheduled processing), it automatically becomes "Live", counting towards your total number of Live Outputs available in your account. 

You can create as many channels as you want without having them count towards your total number of Live Outputs, as long as they are in "Draft", meaning that they have not been processed. 


There are two ways for a channel to move from "Draft" to "Live":

  • When you click "Process now" in your channel options
  • When you set up scheduled processing


ℹ️ If you wish to increase the number of Live Outputs you have access to in your account, please contact your Account Manager!



Channel Detail Page

When you click on a channel name in the channel overview, you will enter that channel's details page. This is where you can set up and modify that channel's settings.


You can also: 

1. Duplicate a channel

2. Delete a channel 


💡  Duplicating a channel can save time in creating and setting up similar channels.




ℹ️   For more details on modifying a channel's settings, see the article on creating a channel.
