Managing and organizing products have always played an important role in the growth of any online e-commerce site.
For small scale e-commerce businesses where it is easy to manage products, at the same time, it is a tough chore to manage product for large scale e-commerce business.
Magento 2 Product Grid Editor is one such extension which allows easy modifications of the product information such as Name, SKU, Quantity, etc, which can be done directly in the product grid itself.
There is no need to navigate to any page in order to change any of the product data. Also, the changes which are done in the product list reflect in the Edit Page and the Frontend as well.
This extension also facilitates the creation of duplicate products. The Create Duplicate option is present under the Actions tab, which eases the creation of the duplicate products in just one click.
The idea behind optimizing the product grid is that at times when there is an immediate need for product information alteration, it can be done in the grid itself without having to visit the product’s Edit page so as to set the configurations.
- The admin can edit default product attributes and custom product attributes on the grid itself.
- Reduces the task of navigating from one page to another.
- A grid can be sort by default product attribute column as well as by custom product attribute column.
- It is easy to drag default product attribute columns and custom attribute columns on the product grid.
- This extension also facilitates the creation of duplicate products in just one click.
