“Quick simple product creation” - Categories & Websites not configured

Hi all,

I’ve been creating simple associated products using the “Quick simple product creation” panel, in Associated Products tabs. I noticed today that the simple products created using this function, do not have any categories or websites assigned. As a result, the parent configurable product is displayed as out of stock.

I manually assigned some categories on these simple products (in Categories tab), and chacked the “Main Website” option (in Websites tab) and the parent conf product became available for sale.

Why is this happening? Do I have to manually set these parameters for all associated simple products?  Isn’t there some way to inherit the parent configurable products categories and websites?

Hello,

You can try to generate the combinations of simple products associated with configurable using alternative solution called Store Manager for Magento. There you can set options for simples and it is much easier and quicker than from admin.
Check related article for the details -

Also there is a webinar on this, it is quite long, but you can check only the procedure of automated creation simple products. The URL to webinar is in my signature.
