Select Products for Bulk Operations

Before you can apply Bulk Operations, you must first select products for Bulk Operations using one of the following methods:

Bulk selecting a product enables Bulk Operation mode, which allows you to apply operations to the selected products.

Note: Bulk Operation mode has some restrictions, which you can read about in the Bulk Operation Mode Restrictions section.

 

Bulk select products individually

  1. Open the Product Grid Editor in the Dashboard.

  2. In the Product Grid Editor, go to one of the following tabs:

  • Product tab on the left-hand search panel.

  • Visual Editor tab on the right.

  • Changes tab on the right.

  1. Hover over the upper left corner of any product card. This reveals a checkbox (highlighted in red in the next screenshot).

  1. Select the checkbox to include that product in the next Bulk Operation. This also enables Bulk Operation mode, which reveals the checkboxes for other products and the Bulk Operation menu.
Note: When the checkboxes are visible, you can click anywhere on the product card to select it.

  1. To add products to the current selection, select any unselected product. To remove products from the current selection, click on any checked box and it will become unchecked.

 

Bulk select products with operations applied

  1. Open the Product Grid Editor in the Dashboard.

  2. In the Product Grid Editor, go to the Changes tab.

  3. Hover over the upper left corner of any product card. This reveals a checkbox (highlighted in red in the next screenshot).


     

  4. Select the checkbox to include that product in the next Bulk Operation. This also enables Bulk Operation mode, which reveals the checkboxes for other products and the Bulk Operation menu.


     

  5. Select Select All to select all products with a specific operation applied. For example, you could select all Locked Products or all Boosted Products.

 

Bulk search and select by product ID

  1. Open the Product Grid Editor in the Dashboard.

  2. In the Product Grid Editor, go to the left-hand search panel.

  3. Select the triangle at the right of the search bar to reveal the PID search menu.


     

  4. In the PID search menu, enter a list of product IDs separated by commas, spaces, or lines.

Rules for bulk PID search
 
  • PIDs should be separated by one of the following: commas, spaces, or lines.
  • PIDs should be unique and there should be no duplicates. Detected duplicates will be ignored, and only the first entry will be considered for the Bulk Operation selection sequence. The PID search menu will display a message if duplicates are detected.
  • Any empty values will be ignored.
  • PIDs can be copied from from external sources like Excel or Google Sheets.
  • No special characters (except for valid PIDs).
  1. Select Select all & Search.


     

  2. All products will be automatically selected, and in the same order in which the PIDs were entered in the list.

Note: You can only search for up to 100 product IDs in a single search. If your list contains more than 100 product IDs, the PID counter will display a warning.



If you select Select all & Search, only the first 100 product IDs will be included.
  1. To exclude products from your selection, click on a checked box and it will become unchecked.

 

Bulk Operation Mode Restrictions

Bulk Operation mode has two major restrictions on selecting products.

Bulk Operation mode limit

Bulk Operation mode can only be enabled in one side of the Product Grid Editor at a time, either the left-hand search panel or the Visual Editor/Changes tabs. 

For example, if you have enabled Bulk Operation mode in the Visual Editor, then you cannot enable Bulk Operation mode in the left-hand search panel. In the screenshot below, the checkbox for Bulk Operation does not appear in the left-hand search panel.

Bulk search by product ID will also be disabled if you have enabled Bulk Operation mode in the Visual Editor, as shown in the screenshot below.

To enable Bulk Operation mode on the other side of the Product Grid Editor, you must first exit the active Bulk Operation mode by selecting the X at the far right of the Bulk Operation menu. 

External rules and Bulk Operations

Products locked by an external rule (any rule other than the one you are working in) cannot be selected for Bulk Operations. The Product Grid indicates which products are affected by external rules, as well as which products are affected by the internal rule (the rule you are working in).
