Updated over a week ago

There will be occasions when you'll want to work with your data in a spreadsheet.

The category view of your channel has two options (Download and Export) as shown below:

How to choose between Exporting vs. Downloading

If you are planning to re-import the data after working with it in your spreadsheet, you should choose Export selected master data.

  • This Exported spreadsheet will include several hidden rows that we use to correctly reimport the data after manual edits have been made.

If you are not planning to re-import the data, you should choose Download all products.

  •  This option is typically used to move data into another application or spreadsheet (e.g.: for a lightweight channel where syndication is done by sending a spreadsheet to the retailer)
