Bulk Updates

You can find this section under Data Imports/Exports > Bulk Updates in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

You use this section to make updates to a selection of key tables in IRP Admin, including your brands, categories, customers, models, stock, stock location level and translation data.

Note: You should NOT use the Bulk Updates section for creating new products. If you want to add new products, use the Import Products section.

This is one of the powerful features in IRP that enable you to create and manage your product catalogue effortlessly. All you need to do is complete a template file and then upload it to the IRP.

DataBulkUpdates.aspx page

The DataBulkUpdates.aspx page appears as follows:

Bulk Updates page

As shown in the screen capture above, there are two tabs:

  • Upload File and Stage Update Data: You use this tab to upload your completed data file, stage the data and then import it to the IRP.
  • Create Template File: You use this tab to set up and download a template file for importing the data.

Example Use Case: Updating the Stock Level in a Stock Location

To update the stock level in a Stock Location:

  • Use the Bulk Updates function and select ‘Stock Location Levels’ as the table to be updated. The Stock Location Name and ID can be found in the Stock Locations section of IRP Admin.
  • You can create a template file using the Bulk Updates feature and limit it to the relevant Stock Location. Note that a bulk update will potentially affect website stock levels also if you check the Update Website Stock check box, otherwise only the local level for the specified Stock Location will be updated. If Update Website Stock is checked, the website stock level will be made to equal the sum of the stock levels across all Stock Locations for every stock ID.
  • Note also that the system checks for duplicate StockID-StockLocationID entries before performing an update (this prevents duplicate rows being returned in the Order Sheets which join onto the Local Stock Levels table in the IRP database for Picking Locations).

For more details, refer to the How to Carry Out Bulk Updates article in this section.
