Editing Product Fields Using Placeholders from Other Fields

There may be times when you want to modify product fields using data from other fields.  For example, you may need to add the vendor to the beginning of all your product descriptions.  In this case, you would use the vendor placeholder to add to the beginning of the description field.  We'll cover:

Using a placeholder

To use a placeholder, first start an in-app edit, and filter for the products you wish to modify. 

In the example below, we are going to update the "Description" field to include the Vendor at the beginning of the field.

After choosing the "Description" field as the one to edit and "Add to Beginning" as how to edit, click the "Add Placeholder" button, and choose "Vendor" from the list. This will enter the placeholder code of {{ product.vendor }} into the text area for the edit. When ready, click the "Run Edit" button on the right.

Adding a placeholder to the beginning of a field always includes a line return after the placeholder.
