Introducing the Admin View: better products management
August 13, 2009
UGAL is a dashboard-less content management system: you can edit any page of your website by simply browsing to it and clicking the "Edit Page" link. The approach has one drawback in the case of large product catalogs: finding the right product page to edit is not always easy. And it lacks a consolidated view to quickly review the products in a catalog.
To address this issue, we are very pleased to introduce today the "Admin View" for product catalogs.
What is the Admin View
The Admin View consolidates on one page the most important characteristics of your products. It has 2 interfaces: one that shows the product properties (name, status, rating, URL etc...) and one that is dedicated to e-commerce (availability, prices, inventory level etc...):
Clicking any of the links of the admin view will take you to the product edit page, with the proper tab (General, Photos or Shop) tab already selected. Once you are done with the update, you will be redirected to the Admin View, at the place you left it.
How to access the Admin View
The admin view can be access from any product catalog, by clicking the "Admin View" link next to "Pages Properties".
The Admin View simplifies the management of product catalogs. We developed it based the feedback we receive from you. So, have a look at it, and let us know if you think of ways to improve it.
To easier products management!
