Within ecomdash, the Queue Listings option allows you to edit and revise your listings before you push those listings out to your storefront.
There are a few different ways to queue up listings:
1. Inventory Management: If you know the products you want to list and to which channels, you can select the products from within inventory management, and take the queue listing action on that screen to pick which channel you would like to list them to.
Within Inventory Management, you can also click into the product details of an item (binocular icon), and navigate to the Listings tab. Here you can see what storefronts the product is not listed on, and select that storefront from the dropdown menu.
After clicking on the blue "Go" button, you will then be able to add or edit any listing details. Once you have made these changes, you can then click the "Queue Listing" button, which will push this product to the Queued Listings page.
2. Listing Management: Within the Listing Section, you will see a Listing Management Tab. From here you will see all of your products, where they are currently listed or not listed and based on that, queue up additional listings to ensure your products are where you want them.
3. Unlisted Products: Within the Listing Section, you will see the Unlisted Products Tab. On this tab, you can select which storefront you want to create listings on from the dropdown menu. Once you select your storefront, all of the products in your inventory NOT currently listed on your storefront will show up. You can then select the product(s), and click the blue "Queue Listings" button.
Once you click "Queue Listings", you will then be re-directed to the Queued Listings tab. Here, you can apply any sales channel specific edits.
After you have queued up a product to be listed, it will be in queued status. On the Queued Listings Tab, you will see a blue button that says "Validate Listings". Clicking this will cause ecomdash to review the products and make sure all the required information is filled out.
Once the validation completes, your listings will now be in a Ready or Edits Required Status.
Edits Required: This status means that you have queued up a product however the listing is missing required fields needed to list the product to the channel you have selected. To fill in the required fields, you can click on the listing using the binoculars from within the queued listing screen. You will see at the top of the listing detail the missing required fields. Once you fill them in, you can save the listing.
Ready: This status means that you have all of the required fields populated to submit the listing to your sales channel. If you would like to preview it or review the data, you can click into the listing detail by clicking the binoculars. When you ready, all you need to do is click the blue "Submit Listings" button, which will then push the listing to your sales channel.
Failed: If you submit your listing, and for some reason the listing could not be posted, it will show up in the queued listings page with a status of Failed. When it shows up as failed, it will also have a message of why the listing could not be posted. You can click into the listing details (binocular icon) to make any changes that are necessary. You can then submit the listing one more time by clicking the blue "Submit Listings". This can also be checked by navigating to Listings-->History-->Listing Submission History.
If you want to remove the product from the Queued Listings page, you can either click the red "X" on the right hand side of the listing individually, or you can select multiple listings, and remove them in bulk by clicking the blue "Remove Listings" button.
