  4. Use the Status column to indicate which products to delete or discontinue

Format

The D-Tools Data File contains one record (row) for each model number in your catalog. Each record has the following data fields (columns):

File:Si5Wiki/MVP/Sending_Data_to_D-Tools/D-Tools_Data_File/dtoolsfile.jpg

Status - this is an indicator field that tells D-Tools what to do with the record. Possible values are:

KEEP - Leave product as is. No changes. You can also just leave these blank

UPDATE - Make changes to the data

NEW - New product that needs to be added

DELETE - Permanently delete this product

DISCONTINUE - Product is discontinued

Model - the unique model number for this product. Click here for more information

Description - a short description for the product

URL - the main product URL from your site. Where do users go to get information on this product?

Category and Subcategory - D-Tools category and subcategory. These are restricted to D-Tools standard categories. When changing these, please try to use categories and subcategories which already exist in your spreadsheet.

Thumbnail URL - if you have a thumbnail image that is available online, you can add the URL here and we will upload the image

Other Fields - dimensions, MSRP, SKU, and a number of other fields are available. See Supported Data Fields for more information
