Through this button, you can also edit, and delete tags directly from our SaaS in order to filter your products, and classify them by sets in order to improve the management.

How to filter by connections?

If you go to ‘Advanced’ in the upper right corner, you will see that we can filter by Connections. These filters will help you easily locate which products are not connected, so you can focus on them and increase connections, either manually or through Smart Connections.

 

How to add a new product to your catalog? 

IF YOUR ARE A BRAND

If you are a brand you have the option to enter your products data manually.

You simply need to go to the Catalog and connections menu and visit ‘My Catalog‘. Once there, at the top right of the screen there’s the option ‘Add product’. 

1. You see here the form you need to fill in with the information required to add new products.

You need to add the product title, select the brand of that product and add tags if you need to. Then we recommend you to add the external reference, the EAN code or the MPN. If you don’t, an automatic code will be created for that product. The ASIN code is optional. Finally, you can enter the MSRP for that product in question. As well as images of it.

Once you’re finished, you can click on ‘Save and add another‘.

3. Another way to do this is by importing all the data directly from an URL. By hitting the button ‘Import data from URL’ a window will pop up with a writing box. Just paste the URL from where you want to import the product information and hit ‘Import URL’.

Connections History

The connections history is a visual way of checking the volume of connections made and who has done such connections.

There’s a line-graph to check the evolution of connection-building throughout time. The color coding in this graph consists of two main colors, black (your organization) and red (Netrivals team), used to differentiate the teams responsible for the connections. You can also get to visualize more colors that will represent specific authors/users responsible for a given amount of connections.
