1. Copy, Paste and Clone

ChoiceCopyProductsMethodForm


To perform copy/paste or clone products you can use toolbar, context menu or drag-and-drop technology. Also these operations can be performed with more than one product at once.

Here are a few ways in which Store Manager users can perform copy/paste or clone operation:

  1. You can use copy/paste copy-paste buttons icons. First you have to copy selected product and go to the category you need. When you're pasting the product, you're creating the new one with the new ID number and the postfix "-clone" at the product's name.



    You have to choose whether to:
    • Assign existing product(s) to current category - when you're pasting a product in current category, you're making some changes to the product you copied, not creating a new one,
    • Create a copy of products in current category - in this case the only difference between original and copied products is in the category they are assigned to,
    • Move products to current category option - this method will remove products from the first category (where they were copied from), and will assign them to current category.
  2. Clone Products Clone product option is actually similar to a combination of copy and paste buttons. It will copy selected product and place it to the same category with the new ID number and the postfix " - clone" at the product's name. This way is easier and faster than copy/paste.
     
  3. Finally, you can use Drag&Drop technology to copy/paste, assign or move your products. Just highlight a few products, drag them and then just drop on any of the category names. 
Copy product method

You'll see exactly the same method to copy products' list. You may select from:
  • Assigning existing product(s) to current category - when you're pasting a product in current category, you're making some changes to the product you copied, not creating a new one),
  • Creating a copy of products in current category - in this case the only difference between original and copied products is the category they are assigned to,
  • Moving products to current category option - this method will remove products from the first category (where they were copied from), and will assign to current category.
