External System for Child ID Numbers
This article is for advanced users to import Surfboard Products as Stock Orders into their system with specific Child ID numbers.
This can be used to place an order using a product SKU and also assign a Product ID and Child ID to these imported boards.
NB. This will not automatically link the Parent product with the Child Product. To do this, you will need to open the Tracking Information for the Child Product in its native Cavewire and enter in it's Parent's Cavetrack ID and GUID. Check out this article for more information on how to do this here.
You will need to download THIS CSV file and adjust to your specific needs.
Adjust CSV to be in line with your system. You will need to enter in a 1 in both the cavewire_cavetack_child_connection_id and the qty columns for each board order you are placing.
You will need to add in the Child ID you want recorded against your product in the cavewire_cavetrack_child_id column and the SKU for the product you want to order in the sku column. The system will create the order for that exact SKU so make sure it lines up with the exact product you need to order. The sample csv below will create an order for a Wave Farer that is 6'0 with a number of customisations that will have the Child ID of 1234567
