Updating Only Some Fields

Hi Guys,

I’ve tested this and it seems to work, but after the initial import, it seems I can update only info like size, description, or other fields with an import file that includes only sku and the field(s) to be updated.

Does anyone know of any issue with doing this?

Basically, sometimes I need to change a bunch of something but don’t want to reimport categories, etc. which may have changed.

Hi Kory,

There shouldn’t be any issue with doing this, you can just import the data that you want to change and anything which hasnt changed you can leave out. This keeps the file size down and should speed up any import times
