This article will show you how to Bulk Import products to your production system.
This can be used if you are setting up your Cavewire system and want to add a number of products to production from a previous system.
Please note: products imported will be automatically assigned to your Cavewire's Stock Account. If you need to assign these products to a specific customer, you can do this after the import via your product workflow control screen.
You will need to know the complete SKU of the product you are importing into your system.
If this product is linked to another child system, you will also need to know the product SKU and the Child System's correlating Cavetrack ID number - find out more about how to find a product's sku here.
Step 1 - Creating your Import CSV
You will need to create a product upload CSV to be able to import your products into production. These can be built out using the templates below.
The first template (Bulk Import Products Template) is for local production import and will be used the majority of the time.
The second template (Bulk Import Products with Child Cavetrack ID template) is for when your system is connected to an external system and will be used if you connect with another system for production purposes.

Step 2 - Importing your CSV
You will need to have access to the ADMIN SUPPORT->IMPORT ORDERS page. If you do not have access, get in touch with a Cavewire representative to give you access to this module. Once you have access, navigate to this page.
Once on this page, use the Choose File button to select your upload CSV from your local disk drive. Once selected, choose IMPORT.
Once you have imported your product upload file, the system will create products. Depending on how many products you are importing, this may take up to 1 minute. Do not navigate away from the screen until you receive the Order Confirmation status.
