• This interface allows you to assign 'attribute values' to the product variants against the required locations in a bulk quantity through an Excel file. To do so, you need to download the default Excel format, update the Excel with required data and upload.

  • You can specify the attribute values against the 'existing attributes' only, and you cannot add the 'new attributes' here.

  • In the case of predefined attribute values (if any), you must specify the existing predefined attribute values only.

    • Note: Based on these attribute valuesyou can define some specific actions such as 'MRP Variance' after placing the Order, i.e. permitting the picker to modify the MRP of a variant item while picking it based on the predefined attribute value of the variant item.

  • The upload status against each upload will be updated in run-time in the ‘Task History’ section.
