Adding Short Descriptions using the Import/Export System
When you have installed the Product Summary in Categories feature and manually added a Short Description to one of your Products using the instructions above, you can use the Import/Export System and spreadsheets to add Short Descriptions to the rest of your Products. You’ll notice as you export your Products to a spreadsheet that Short Descriptions are now listed as an exportable field:
When you have exported your spreadsheet, you can add summaries for your Products on the ‘Product Row’ (no need to add anything for the Variant rows) in the ShortDescription column. Don’t forget to amend the A column to read ‘Edit Product’ for every Product that you have added a Short Description to, before saving your spreadsheet and uploading it onto your EKM online shop.
