The Advanced Inventory Search feature allows you to preform detailed and precise searches of the inventory stored in your ecomdash account. This tool is designed to allow you to easily find specific groups of products using information outside of the SKU Number or Product Name field. It can be used to find all products with similar or missing information so these products can be edited or grouped together for other functions. Using this tool, you can create custom searches with AND/OR logic. For an introduction on using AND/OR operators, see this introductory guide from MIT.
To preform an Advanced Inventory Search, navigate to Inventory > Inventory Management > Search.
Here, you have the option to create a new search by adding rules or groups. You can also select from any previous rules you have saved.
Use "+ Add Rule" to add a new rule and "+ Add Group" to add a new group
Click Search to preform a search based on the criteria you defined. This search returned all products that contain "hanes" in the SKU Number that do not have a supplier defined in ecomdash. Using the Assign Tags and Export Tools described below, this subset of products can easily be grouped together or collectively edited.
If you would like to save this search for later, click Save Rules. Note, this does not save the search results, just the search terms so they can be reapplied later if your inventory is changed or updated.
To export your search results, click Export. You can choose to export selected inventory (Use the checkbox to make the selection) or all inventory included in the search. Once export is clicked, you'll have the option to select an export format.
You can also Assign Tags to your search results for quick reference in other ecomdash modules.
