How to add pictures and files to a product

All Product related information and operations are available in Workspace's Product Management module, which will open in a new window when you select from the top menu:
Products > Products > Products

Steps to add pictures and files to a product:

  1. In Product Management locate the product to which you want to add pictures or files. There are two methods for locating products:
    • Running a keyword search: type search keyword(s) to the search box in the top right corner and click on "Search" button
    • Browsing the product group structure in Groups Management view in the left column. Click on a group name to display a list of its products in the right column.

    When you have found the product, click on the its "Modify" button to open a Product Card window.

  2. Select tab "Pictures and files" from the Product Card. On this tab you can attach 5 pictures and 5 files to the product. There are two alternatives for each picture/file slot:
    • Enter the full URL address to the picture/file (see "Picture 1 URL" in screenshot below), or
    • Upload a local picture/file to be stored with the product data in Workspace (see "Picture 2"): Click "Browse" button to choose a file and "Upload" to send it to Workspace

    Note that the URL address will be used in the webshop only if you haven't uploaded a picture/file.

    You may enter a description of each picture. This "alt-text" will be displayed in the shop when mouse cursor is positioned over the picture.

    For each product file there is a "linktext" field which is used to create a download link to the actual file. A file's linktext can not be left empty, otherwise the download link will be invisible to the user.

    Finally click "Accept" or "Cancel" button on the page's down-right corner to save or abandon changes.

  4. Done: adding pictures and files to the product is now complete.
