Admin Bulk Insert bug/flaw

Posted: July 17, 2017 at 7:31 AM Quote #190155
Let's say you're running a store with Home Appliances.  And you want to create a few categories.  Washers, Dryers, Refrigerators, Ovens, etc...  And within each category, you want to allow users to filter by brand.  So you create a sub-category for Kenmore, Whirlpool, Samsung, etc... within each category.

Now, when I go to bulk load, for the category I put in Kenmore.

The problem is, there's no way to tell WHICH Kenmore category I want it in.  And it doesn't go by SKU, because I have them as wash_ken_0001 or oven_sams_0001 so that each SKU is indeed unique.

I discovered this by exporting a list using the Export functionality, and then when I imported some data using the same category that exported, it imported into Kenwood Washers instead of Kenwood Ovens.

My assumption is that this is a flaw, and it's probably not one everyone would encounter because not everyone would have a store set up that way.  But I figured I'd mention it because it'd be nice to have it work properly.

For now, I have to go back in through the Admin panel and edit the entries and manually pick which category it belongs to.
