Product Grid

product grid tab.jpg

One way to manage the Products in your database is through the Product Grid screen.  This screen allows you to see multiple Products in your database in a grid format.  From this screen you can add, edit, copy, and delete any Product in your database.

You cannot manage Packages on this interface.  Use the Product Explorer interface to edit Packages.

You can filter your Products using the Manufacturer, Category, Type, Phase and Search tabs on the left-hand side of the screen.  You also have the options “Display discontinued products” and “Display only unapproved products”.

Along the top of the grid you have the following option buttons: [Add Product], [Edit Product], [Copy Product], [Delete Product], [Add and Remove Columns, Groups], [Sort], [Print], [Export], [Update Price], and [Open in I/O Studio], [Google Product Search].
