Product Management in Admin
Product Types and Product Fields
The fields that are shown on the product adding/editing page in admin
depend on the product type. In these examples, we’ll assume the
product type is
Product - General. This is the most common (and default) product type.
Adding a Product
Adding a product allows you to set all the product fields available to that product type. Adding is done on the product add/edit screen.
For more information, see the product FAQs.
When you add a product, the product’s master category is set to the category in which you are adding the product.
Editing a Product
Editing a product is also done from the product add/edit screen.
This screen shows you the master category id value for a product, which tells you the category the product is in.
If the product is a linked product it will have other category associations, which can be managed in the Products to Categories page.
Deleting a Product
Deleting a product removes it from the catalog entirely. Deleting a product is done from the Categories/Products screen using the trash can icon.
Moving a Product
Moving a product changes its master category so it appears in another place. Moving a product is done from the Categories/Products screen using the purple M icon.
Copying a Product
Copying a product can be used to create a duplicate of the original product or create a linked product. Copying a product is done from the Categories/Products screen using the blue C icon.
Multiple Categories Link Manager
The Multiple Categories Link Manager button takes you to the Products to Categories page with the product already selected.
