Importing tags

» Available only in Dotypos FULL and higher. «

Dotypos Cloud lets you import or export the tags used to identify individual products or customers. If you have already created tags, you can export them to the file and use it for backups or adjustments. If you import this file back via Dotypos Cloud, the tags will be automatically updated or newly created. You may import just one .csv file. Before importing the .xls file, you have to save it in .csv format first.

To find out how to import/export see the parent chapter.

 

Each tag has its own ID number. If you modify an item in the .csv file, the item with the same ID number will be adjusted in Dotypos Cloud after the import and also in the touch cash register after synchronization.

You will find the import and export buttons in the page heading at LISTS » PRODUCTS. To display the page with tags, you have to switch to Tags.

If you have not created any tags yet and you want to batch import them, download the .csv template from Dotypos Cloud and replace the sample data with yours. Then import the file. The sample procedure is described in this chapter.
