When you look at the details for a spreadsheet edit in the app, there's a View Configuration button on the top of the page which will show you the column mappings used for the spreadsheet edit. We've updated this screen to also show whether the 'Skip unchanged rows' option was selected for the edit:

We've improved the error message that's displayed when you hit the daily variant limit with an in-app edit. Previously the app would just show that the edit errored out but now the message will tell you why.

This message was already displaying if you hit the variant limit when creating variants with a spreadsheet but now will also appear when adding variants with an in-app edit.

When you upload an Excel spreadsheet to the Bulk Product Editor the app will automatically choose the first sheet in the workbook to use. Previously this could lead to a hidden sheet being selected if it was in the first position in the workbook. We saw this will working with some other tools that would automatically insert an hidden sheet at the start of the workbook when you export data.

Now the app will ignore hidden sheets and instead choose the first visible sheet of an Excel workbook. This should cause things to function as expected, the first visible sheet in an Excel workbook will be the one the app uses.

Previously the option to skip unchanged rows for spreadsheet edits would not work if the spreadsheet edit was only updating inventory levels. This was because the app uses different API calls to update inventory levels that's faster than the typical edits.

Now, if you select 'Skip unchanged rows' for a spreadsheet edit, that will also work for edits that are just modifying the inventory levels.

You can find the option to skip unchanged rows for a spreadsheet edit by clicking on the Advanced button after uploading a spreadsheet to the app.

Now you can access properties about a collection through a collection reference metafield. Previously if you access a collection reference through a code snippet:: you would just see the ID of the object, like gid://shopify/Collection/1234567890.

With this change you now have access to the collection's ID, title, handle, description, and the date it was published. This works for both collection references and lists of collection references.

Code snippets allow you to write code in Liquid to set different product fields. We've released several updates to the Code snippets to improve their usability:

  • The parse_json filter is more generous when converting a string to a JSON object. It will accept things like trailing commas in lists that aren't part of the official JSON specification
  • Number and boolean metafields are now rendered as number and boolean objects instead of strings. For example, a number metafield will now render as 123 instead of "123"
  • We fixed a bug where in some cases you could not read product metafields after setting one

For the last three years we have implemented a feature freeze during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday season. The primary goal is to maintain the stability of our app.

We've found that, after a certain point, most of the bugs we encounter stem from recent changes or additions to the app. By refraining from making any changes or introducing new features for a brief period, we can minimize the chances of disruptions and ensure smooth operation throughout the holiday season.

Our feature freeze will be in effect from the end of November 15th to November 29th, lasting for two weeks. During this period, we won't be releasing new features. However, please rest assured that we will address any critical problems or issues promptly to minimize disruptions to your business operations.

We've made some important changes to how the app handles SKUs.

As technology evolves, we increasingly encounter a multitude of characters beyond the traditional ASCII set, including Unicode characters and special characters. These characters may look similar to standard ones but can cause issues when used in SKUs.

Our update addresses this by improving how we handle and search for Unicode and special characters within SKUs. This ensures that you can find products by SKU, even if they include these non-standard characters.

You can now write your own logic to update your products with code snippets. Code snippets are written in the Liquid language (also used by Shopify themes) and give you a powerful tool to keep your product data in sync.

Using a few lines of code and the assign operator, you can set your product data according to your business requirements.

You can then apply to the code snippet to your products using an in-app edit. For more automation, you can combine the code snippet with product rules, so that the code snippet to applied to product whenever they are created and/or updated.

You can use this to do things like automatically set your Google Shopping fields, make sure products are in the right collections, or have the right tags.
