Cloning an Edit
There may be times you need to make multiple changes to the same set of products. Instead of repeatedly setting up the same product filters to isolate the products, you can clone an edit to save time.
In this article we'll take you through the steps of cloning a product edit. We'll cover:
- How cloning an edit works
- Identifying and cloning the edit
- Choosing the field to modify
- Running the Edit
In order to follow along you should have:
- The Bulk Product Editor app installed
- Products on your Shopify store to edit
- Completed your first bulk edit
How Cloning an Edit Works
Identifying & Cloning the Edit
To find the edit you wish to clone, click the "History" link on the left hand side of the Bulk Editor app, and then click 'Edit History'. You will see a list of all edits, and their status, progress, and start date.
To clone an edit, click the title in the list, then click the "Clone Edit" link on the right hand side of the screen.
Choosing the Field to Edit
After clicking " Clone Edit", you will see a list of all the products that match the search criteria for the original edit. Click the "Modify Products" button on the right hand side of the page to choose the fields you want to edit.
Running the Edit
Once you have chosen the fields to modify, click the " Run Edit" button to run the edit immediately, or the "Schedule Edit" button to schedule the edit to run at a time in the future.
Now that you've cloned an edit, here are more things you can try:
- Use the Schedule Edit feature to schedule future edits
- Use the Undo Edit button to revert the changes you just made
- Using Email Triggers to Edit Products
