Bulk Change Products - Inactive --> Active

Oh geez...we have about 25k products that were turned to inactive in bulk while we implemented another POS software system. 


I was able to do this in Bulk.


Now, I want to make them active again so that they can sync with other software and it appears I have to do them 1 by 1?  


Say it ain't so....

Bulk Change Products - Inactive --> Active

Hi scott129,


The option to activate the product and services by batch isn't available. We'll have to do it manually. However, we can activate them continuously by filtering the list. 


Let me guide you with these steps:


  1. From the Sales tab, select Products and Services.
  2. Click the Funnel (Filter) icon.
  3. In the Status field, select Inactive.
  4. Click Apply.
  5. Under ACTION, click Make active.


In case there's a need to update their quantity on hand, you can check this article: Adjust Inventory Quantity On Hand in QuickBooks Online.


I'm just a post-away if there's anything that I can help. Keep safe!
