Hi Magento team,

Actually am consolidating some feature requests on the current product import functionality. This is being discussed in the forums and searched here in the feature requests and found it missing. So thought of logging it here.

1. Importing categories - Categorization of products is crucial for an ecommerce store and when the number of products runs into thousand, it saves a lot of time to import categories along with products.
2. Importing inventory position. A number of ecommerce store frequently updates the inventory position of its products and the import process would help immensely in saving a lot of time for this purpose.

Version : Magento ver. 0.8.16100

Thanks,
Srini

I too am looking forward to a better way to manage/edit products.

For instance, it would be great if you could select a range of images and apply the same image to them all. An example would be selling hard disks. They come in a variety of capacities, but they all generally look the same.

It’s a little frustrating having to edit each product individually just to change it’s image. Not only that, but it wastes online storage space by having to upload the same image over and over again. You end up with something like this—hd.jpg, hd_1.jpg, hd_2.jpg, etc

Also a handy feature would be a way to import/export products and categories separately from everything else inside magento.
