Question

How can I schedule products to become available at a certain time in the future?


Hi friends,

We have products that change at noon on Fridays. Right now we go in and disable the current products and enable the new products - as close to noon as we can get.

Is there a way to automate that? I'd like to be able to tell ecwid to enable a group of products (and disable a different group of products) at a certain time in the future.

Hope that makes sense!

THANKS for a wonderful product - and a helpful knowledgebase community!

peace,
karin

Unfortunately, Ecwid doesn’t have functionality, which allows to enable/disable products automatically.

Currently, you can use Import/Export functionality. It allows you to edit products availability in one place. In order to do this you should:
1. Go to Ecwid control panel → Catalof → Products
2. Click “Export All” button in the bottom of the page
3. Choose columns which you will import (You will need to choose product name or SKU and Enabled fields only)
4. Click “Download CSV file” and save Export file on your computer.
5. Open this file using one of programmes, which allows to Edit CSV files
6. Find “Enable” column and place “yes” opposite products, which should available after import and “no” opposite products, which should be disabled.
7. Save edited CSV file
8. Go back to Ecwid control panel → Catalog → Products and click ”Import products” button
9. Select your CSV file with corrected products availability.
10. Click “Import”

When products import will be finished, availability for all products will be changed.

If you consider that functionality which allows to enable/disabled products in exact time should be added in Ecwid, please, vote for the idea here: http://ideas.ecwid.com/forums/22031-...t-availability and we will inform you when it will be added in Ecwid.
