How to enable batch tracking to products in bulk

 

You can enable batch tracking in bulk by updating product information via CSV or importing new products via CSV. 

1. Go to Inventory> click ‘Update Existing Product’ or 'Import New Products' . 

2. Download the spreadsheet. If you have already enabled batch tracking on your products, skip Steps 3 and 4. The column will appear in your spreadsheet of your Stock on Hand Report. 

3. Add column(s) to the template  

4. Add an additional column for 'Batch Tracked', input 'TRUE/FALSE '


Note
Batch and Expiry tracking is currently in BETA. When the feature is released to the public, it will be included as part of the spreadsheet template. If you are interested to experience batch and expiry tracking (BETA), contact your success manager at success@tradegecko.com today!

After adding the column for batch tracking, your spreadsheet should look like this:

5. Upload your updated spreadsheet in .csv format 


6. One last check on your product updates 


7. ‘Upload these products’ to complete your product update. Your desired products will now have batch tracking enabled in bulk.

Done! 

Note
Batch and expiry tracking is enabled at the product level. Quantities are tracked at the variant level.

Do note that in your spreadsheet, you cannot input TRUE and FALSE for the variants of the same product. TradeGecko will register the information based on the first variant listed in the spreadsheet (as highlighted in the following image). In the example below, TradeGecko will register Cat Tuxedo as FALSE, not batch tracked.
