Why do you need to analyze products when I install the app?
When you install the Bulk Product Editor app, you might need to wait while the app analyzes your products. This means that the app is creating a copy of your product data in our database.
We need a copy of the product data in our database so we can support undoing edits, fast product exports and advanced product search features in the app. Without it, you'd be limited to just a few search filters, and they would take much longer to run.
You won't need to do this each time you start the app. Don’t worry; that process only happens once during installation. Going forward, Shopify will send us a message every time a product is updated (called a webhook). We take these messages and use them to keep our local copy of your products in sync with your Shopify data.
We only store product-related data (not orders) with this app, and if you uninstall it, we no longer receive the product updates from Shopify.
If you're on a free plan, you might need to re-analyze your products every time you do not use the Bulk Product Editor app for 14 days.
