Bulk Inventory update by SKU number, NOT product name.

HM2019

Suppliers work with SKU numbers, NOT product names. When suppliers update prices and a bulk update into QBO is required this NEEDS to be done using SKU numbers as the main point of reference. Please update bulk inventory imports to use SKU instead of item name. The way it is now makes it almost impossible to work with in any efficient way. Its easier to bulk update prices in my ecommerce store than it is on QBO.

I`m not sure theres 50 active people using the community forums. Maybe drop the number to something more achievable like 10, or at least promote the idea exchange so more people know about it. Send out an email shot to all UK users. Post about it on social media, pin it as a main heading in the forum topics etc.

Thank you. Just to add to my original post....

What this needs is a CSV / Excel data file. The main point of reference needs to be SKU, every other field could then be optional. In my case I would literally use two columns.........

 

1. SKU (Point of reference for QBO inventory)

2. Price

 

When the file imports it looks in QBO for the SKU number and if found it updates the price. If other optional fields like product name etc is also selected then those will be updated aswell.
