We’re excited to preview another section of our new admin with you today - Products.
To refresh your memory, while we’ve been busy cranking out cool new features and themes, we’ve also been rolling out a brand new version of our store admin area, redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up. We’re previewing things a section at a time, so you can begin to try it out in your own admin, and give us feedback to help shape the final release.
A lot has changed in this new products area, so grab a warm drink and let’s walk through what’s new.
An all-new look
The first thing you’ll notice is our new products admin looks very different from the one you use today. It’s not just a fresh coat of paint - we brought your unique product imagery to the forefront, so it feels like it’s yours.
Manage your categories
The next thing you may notice is a bigger focus on category management. From the new Categories tab, it’s now easy to edit your categories all at once, to see which products are in each category, and to add a new product to the list.
Take a glance at your remaining inventory levels with just a click. For shops with inventory tracking enabled, this new feature shows you how many of each product are left in stock, and highlights those that are running low or sold out completely.
Sick of wading through a long list of products? Or maybe you want to find all tees that come in large? We hear ya. Our new search feature allows you to type in any product or option name and quickly find what you’re looking for.
Copy any product
No more re-adding the same options and shipping to new products, or re-typing the same price and description, or re-adding the same categories. Now simply copy any existing product, give it a new name, tweak anything else you’d like, and voilà!
Edit your product URL
When you add a product, we create a URL for it based on its name. But what if its name changes? We don’t automatically update the URL because that would break any links you’ve already shared, but you can now edit the URL yourself if you’d like.
Give it a try
These are just a few of the many improvements we’ve made, and you can check them out now by clicking the Preview our new admin button on the product pages of our current admin, or by visiting my.bigcartel.com/preview/products.
