We are incredibly excited to announce that development work is now underway to introduce new and improved Search and Filter functionality to the main Products page!

We will provide more detail once these new features are closer to being released, but for now here is an overview of the new product management features that you can expect to see coming soon to your ChannelGrabber Products page, along with the wireframes (design mock-ups)!

Separated Search/Filter & Bulk Actions sections

You will notice that the existing search bar and bulk action buttons have now moved around a little at the top of your Products page. This is to facilitate the new Search & Filter functionality outlined below, and also to pave the way for further new functionality that we will be introducing slightly later, surrounding new and improved product management bulk actions (more info to come on that soon too!)

Search Fields

Previously it was only possible to search your products by the SKU and/or Product Name. However we have now implemented a new feature to allow you to choose from additional product fields as well, making it much quicker and easier to locate the specific product(s) that you need to view. Once released, you will have the ability to choose to search for data within any/all of the following fields:

  • SKU

  • Product Name

  • EAN

  • UPC

  • MPN

  • ISBN

  • Variation Attribute

Product & Listing Filters

Currently there are no filter options for products in ChannelGrabber, but all that is about to change! We will be implementing a suite of powerful product filter options to enable you to view/group your products by a wide range of criteria, including the following:

  • Default Filters (these will always be visible in the Product Filter section):

    • Status

    • Channel

    • Account

    • Site

  • More Filters (these can be enabled on demand as required):

    • Available Stock

    • Date Imported

    • Linked Products

    • Low Stock Threshold

    • Picking Location

    • Stock Mode

    • Supplier

    • VAT Rate

    • Weight (kg)

    • Dimensions (cm)

  • Saved Filters

    • You will be able to save any filter or combination of filters to use over and over again at the click of a button

    • Filters will be able to be saved for all Users on the account, or only for the specific User who created the filter, for added control and convenience

Below is the full user guide for these new features, and we will be releasing each one as soon as development is complete, so if you see a function in the below guide that is not yet visible in your ChannelGrabber account, this just means it's on its way and will be released very soon, but isn't live just yet.

Product Search Bar & Search Fields

Using the Search Bar you can enter any custom alpha-numeric value that you wish to search for your products by.

In addition to the existing search, for which results would include any SKU or Product Name that matches your search term, you can now take advantage of the new Search Fields selection button, to widen or narrow which specific product data fields you want to search within:

  1. Enter your search term into the Search Bar

  2. Click the Search Fields drop-down and tick as many of the fields as are appropriate for the search term you have entered into the Search Bar - you can select any/all of the following:

    • SKU

    • Product Name

    • EAN

    • UPC

    • MPN

    • ISBN

    • Variation Attribute

      (By default the "SKU" and "Product Name" fields will be selected, in order to retain the existing functionality for those users who may not utilise this new functionality)

  3. Click the Apply Filters button or click back into the Search Bar and hit enter on your keyboard to apply the search fields to the search term

  4. Voilà! Any product where the content of the specific field(s) you have selected matches your search term will now be displayed on the main Products page.

Product & Listing Filters

Product Filters can be used to tailor your list of products based on the criteria you specify. Filtering can be useful when you want to view only products that conform to certain requirements, for example – all your products that have an active listing on eBay, or only products that have been created/imported within the last 7 days etc.

It is important to remember that product filters are used in conjunction with one another. This means that if you use multiple filtering options, a product must fulfil ALL those requirements in order to be shown in the results.

You can Show or Hide filters at any time on the top-right corner of your Products page:

Applying and Saving Filters

There is an "Apply Filters" button once you have selected all the required filters, and you can also Clear filters and Save filters for regular use:

When you Save a filter, you will need to give it a Filter Name so that you can identify it next time you want to use the same filter, and you will be presented with the option for whether you want to "Save for Current User" ie. just the user profile that you are currently logged into, or "Save for All Users" which will make your saved filter accessible to all users of your Company's ChannelGrabber account:

If you save a filter, it will be accessible within the Saved Filters drop-down menu at the left hand side of the Product Filters section, so it can be applied with one click next time:
