Review Modified Products
The Review Modified Products view allows you to review pending changes on products. You can then publish or discard the product updates and even revert, or edit specific changes.
Review unpublished changes
You can access the Review Modified Products view either through the main menu on the left or by clicking on the “Review modified products” button in the Product List view.
The view lists all products with status modified, that means where the published (current) and staged representations differ. The list can be refined using the same search and filter options as in the Products List view. Each modified product is listed as a separate panel.
On the left of each panel you can see some contextual information that helps you assess the product and its changes. The actual modifications are listed on the right side in a two-columns layout showing the values that are currently published on the left and the changes to be published on the right. Only modified fields and added or removed variants are displayed in the following order:
- General information like the product name
- Product attributes (attributes with same for all constraint)
- Variant attributes, grouped by variant
Some modifications, for example, on images, cannot yet be displayed in this view. However, a short message is indicating the presence of pending changes.
Actions per product
On each product panel you can take different actions that only affect the respective product.
Every changed field on a product or variant can be reverted individually. Just click Revert to published and the Published value on the left will be copied to the Changes column on the right. The field will be marked as reverted. Please note: Attributes of type set can only be reverted as a whole.
You can still edit the reverted field (see below). Make sure to save your changes on the product when you’re done.
Most changes can be edited directly in the Changes column on the right. Editable fields are displayed with a white background and - depending on the field type - allow to type, select, add, or delete values.
After editing one or more fields, use the Save button at the top of the product panel to save your changes. This updates the staged representation of the product and does not affect the currently published version.
Publish a product
Use the Publish button at the top of the product panel to update the published representation of the product with the pending changes. All changes visible in the right column will then be applied to the published product. Please note: Pressing the button has immediate effect (no confirmation needed).
If there are unsaved changes on the product, a Save & Publish button is displayed instead. If you have edited or reverted one or more fields, you can use this button to save and publish all changes on that product in one go.
In case of a successful publication the product panel is collapsed and shows a Published tag.
Revert a product
Use the Revert button at the top of the product panel to discard all changes on a product in one go and revert it to its published version. Please note: Pressing the button has immediate effect (no confirmation needed).
The Revert button is only visible when there are no unsaved changes on the product. If you have edited or reverted one or more fields you have to cancel or save your changes first before you can revert the whole product.
In case of a successful reversion the product panel is collapsed and shows a Reverted tag.
Change the product state
If you have States defined in your project, you can change the state of a product using the dropdown at the top of the product panel.
Make sure to save your changes on the product panel after having selected a new product state.
Please note: The product panel will be collapsed if the new state doesn’t match any applied product state filter. The collapsed panel shows a tag indicating the new state.
The bulk actions are located on top of the modified products list. They allow you to publish, revert, or change the state of all products listed on the current page. You can adjust the page size if you want to increase or reduce the amount of affected products.
You can publish all changes on all products on the current page using the Publish all button. You have to confirm the action before it is applied.
All successfully published products will be collapsed in the list, while panels of products that could not be published remain open and display an error message.
The Revert all button allows you to revert all products on the current page in one go. All pending changes on these products will be discarded. You have to confirm the action before it is applied.
All successfully reverted products will be collapsed in the list, while panels of products that could not be reverted remain open and display an error message.
Bulk state change
You can change the state of all products on the current page by selecting a new state from the dropdown and confirming the action in the subsequent dialog box.
Please note: The bulk state change is only available when all products on the page are in the same product state.
All successfully updated products will be collapsed in the list, while panels of products that could not be updated remain open and display an error message.
