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 all the 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.
