Import is your first step towards integrating product information with Unbxd PIM. You can use the Manage Imports page to import your product information via the following file formats:
You can also import a .ZIP file with one of the specified formats. Once you have the import file ready, you can fetch the file either from your local system or via an SFTP location. Before you proceed to the actual import, you must map the important PIM properties. These properties include Product Id, Product Name, Product Image, Parent Id, and Category. Post mapping the important properties, you can set the other property configurations. The property mapping and configurations can be saved in an import adapter, so that you can save a lot of time for subsequent imports in Unbxd PIM. After the first import, you have the option to schedule your import. This will allow you to automatically run your imports irrespective of the diverse import frequency. For example, you may have a product import that occurs every day, every 2 hours, or the one that is restricted to once-a-week.
Note: The lower limit for an import frequency is set to 15 minutes. That is, you can schedule an import every 15 minutes, but not lesser than 15 minutes.
If you have no file to import, you can start with creating product properties. For more information, see Properties. If you are still working on your import file or waiting for one, you can start with building your PIM team. For more information, see Organization Setup.
