It’s true that practice makes perfect (or at least a pretty close approximation to it). But if you aren’t getting good feedback, how will you ever know what to practice? A while back, we asked some of our Ecwid merchants what they’d change about their Ecwid stores, and you had some great ideas. Then we did some practicing of our own, and applied those ideas to our recent product updates.
If you’ve been following our blog updates, you’ve probably already seen how we improved order management in the Ecwid Control Panel. Now we’ve taken our revisionist approach to your store’s most important asset — your products. Read on to find out how our latest updates make uploading, editing, and managing your products even easier.
Apply Filter Presets to Products
Wanna navigate your products even faster? Now you can apply filter presets to your products, like Out of stock, Disabled, or Displayed on storefront. You can also create and save a custom filter, like all products of a certain category: just click Save filter after you apply it, and you’re ready to go.
Auto-Apply Your Latest Filter
Ever spent hours scouring for something on a website, only to need that exact same thing again later? Now, if you apply a filter once and then leave the page, that filter will be saved until the next time you open the Products tab. We’ll even remember how you sorted your products (by name, SKU, or date), so when you open that page the next time, they’ll be displayed in the same way.
Quickly Duplicate Products
Sometimes it’s easier to add a new product by duplicating an existing one, for example, when the two items are similar, like two different pairs of sneakers. If you find yourself regularly selling similar products, this feature will be especially helpful for you. Just choose Duplicate from the item’s
Link Related Products with a Click
The Related products block shows customers other items they might be interested in based on the product they’re currently viewing. For example, if you’re selling a hat that would look good with a particular coat you’re also selling, you can link the two products so that the hat is promoted in the Related products section for the coat and vice versa. Now you can easily link products with the check of a box.
Save Changes Faster
Last but not least: a faster Save bar. Save your changes faster, so you can get back to editing quickly without the anxiety of losing your progress.
At Ecwid, we’re always testing and improving. If you think you have an idea to make Ecwid better, let us know in the comments. The next update could be yours!
