Add or Remove labels to SKUs using the Import feature

You can use the import / export tool to add, remove, or view your labels in bulk! Here's a quick breakdown of the relevant attributes you might include in a template:

  • Labels - This is a text only field that allows you to export the labels currently assigned to your SKUs. You can only use this to export your labels, so you won't be able to include this attribute on any csv you're importing into Zentail.
  • Add Label - This allows you to add labels in bulk on Zentail. If you want to add more than one label to a SKU via import, just add an additional "Add Label" field to your template! This is an import only field, so you won't be able to export any data with this attribute.
  • Remove Label - This allows you to remove labels in bulk on Zentail. If you want to remove more than one label from a SKU via import, just add an additional "Remove Label" field to your template! This is an import only field, so you won't be able to export any data with this attribute.

Filter for SKUs with certain label(s) on the QuickEdit view

Hopefully you're already familiar with the QuickEdit view on Zentail. If not, it's a great idea to review this article: Quick Edit Catalog View. By adding the Labels column to your custom QuickEdit view, you can choose to filter for SKUs that contain certain labels! Remember, checking the "Negate" check-box of your filter tells Zentail to exclude whatever you're filtering for.

This makes for a super flexible way to stay organized and filter which SKUs you do or do not want to view!

Edit and manage labels in your Account Settings

Within your Account Settings page, you can manage your existing labels. This includes editing the color for your labels. You can also click on any label to instantly navigate to a your QuickEdit view where you can filter by each label!

General notes about using Labels

A few quick notes about using labels on Zentail:

  • Labels will be saved as in all lowercase no matter what.
  • Functionality is coming soon to allow you to create, delete, and edit Labels from your Account Settings page.
  • Functionality is coming soon to create a drop-down of valid Labels after you start typing one in!
