    Automation of the availability of goods in the warehouse

    If you have a leftover file from a supplier, you can automate the process. To do this, you need to create an import template. On the Administration - Import data - Products page add a new import.

    On the preset editing page, specify the name of the template and the file to import, in CSV format. Save the template.


    Now go to the Field Mapping Table tab and select the appropriate fields. For the field with the availability of goods at the supplier, specify the Actuality() property. In the Modifier column, specify the one we need, for example, if you want to show the customer that the product is in stock when the supplier has more than 200 units, then the modifier for the Actuality() line will be case ($ value = "& gt; 200", "Y"). After saving, you can use this template manually or automatically using cron.
