Video: Quickly Create Products and Attributes

Magento’s next release will feature the ability to add simple products and attributes directly through a configurable product. In this video, we create a new configurable product and present this time-saving functionality. Please note that we also expect to add the ability to copy configurable product data to a newly create simple product, making data entry a snap.

    Great to see some improvements to the configurable products.  This feature will help, but I must admit I was hoping to see something that would generate a number of products automatically based of just a minimal amount of data.

    Also, is it possible to duplicate a product from this screen (and will the duplicate bug be fixed).

    Hope I’m not sounding ungrateful, I think the Magento team are all doing a super job!

    @Ross - The way this was implemented you only need to enter the required data for the simple product. We have plans to improve on this even more but I am not sure it will make it into the first stable release.

    The duplicate product bug should be fixed for the next release.

    Wow that was confusing! Too many screens, tabs, attributes, etc. Lucky magento is open source because i wouldn’t pay for it. I guess it’s the same as any other open source product - you get what you pay for. In this case a confusing user interface and clunky layout.

    @foojativ - I think if you actually try Magento you will see that it bucks the trend of poor quality opensource software, and is actually a lot better designed that most commercial solutions (any I have seen).
