Product Pages

The data you populate on this worksheet controls the creation of product pages in Nomad. This sheet contains four columns but only the External Id and Product Page Name field are required.

ExternalId

This field should be set equal to the value of the item number you use in your ERP. This field is not used to display on the storefront if you specify a display item number in the optional item data worksheet.

Product Page Name

This field allows you to provide an accurate but brief name for the page your item(s) will reside on. This name is displayed on product pages, category based product listing pages, and is leveraged as a search term by our site search. Currently, we only support a single item to product page correlation but we do allow multiple items to exist on the same product page. If you plan on creating multi-item pages you should use the same product page names for those items to appear on the same product page.

Short Description (optional)

This is a 128 character, plain text field that displays on product listing pages as a brief description of the product page.

Long Description (optional)

This is an unlimited length field on each product page that supports plain text, markdown, and HTML. This is a fully indexed field by our site search and should be utilized to provide detailed descriptions of the item(s) on your product pages.


Category Pages

The data you populate on this worksheet controls the assignment of product pages to specific category pages. The way you organize your category tree determines your main navigation header and the depth of which your product pages are organized.

External Id

This field should be set equal to the value of the item number you use in your ERP. This field is not used to display on the storefront if you specify a display item number in the optional item data worksheet.

Category

This field will create a category page named the value of what is populated. The first category column contains your top level navigation and your last category column is the end of the site's category based navigation. You can create additional category columns if you require more but we recommend not exceeding three (3) steps in categorization to reach a product page. You can assign a product page to multiple categories by entering a new row with the same External Id with a unique category tree formed in the other category columns in that same row. If you are categorizing a multi-item product page just use a single item from that page for all categorization assignments.


Tags (optional)

Tags are plain text values stored against an item on a product page and leveraged as filterable options on product listings, multi-item product pages, and search result pages.

External Id

This field should be set equal to the value of the item number you use in your ERP. This field is not used to display on the storefront if you specify a display item number in the optional item data worksheet.

Tag Set Name

This field has a max length of 128 characters and is the only field in the data template that should be edited in the header row. Please change each column named "Tag Set Name" in the first row with specific tag set names that best describe the attribute you are assigning against an item. Please feel free to add as many tag sets as you desire. Each row of this sheet that contains an External Id will have it's tag values associated to that item. If an item does not contain a tag value in a particular tag set, leave that cell in that column and row blank.

Please note that tag values are plain text and can not exceed 128 characters.


Extra Item Data (optional)

This worksheet exists in the event you would like to prevent certain ERP synced fields from displaying online or need more specific information around items.

External Id

This field should be set equal to the value of the item number you use in your ERP. This field is not used to display on the storefront if you specify a display item number in the optional item data worksheet.

Item Display Name

By default we sync item display names with your ERP's item description or name fields but you can provide a value if you wish to use a non-ERP provided value.

Item Display Number

By default we sync our display item number field with your ERP's item number field but you can provide a value if you wish to use a non-ERP provided value.

Item Specific Description

This field offers you the change to provide a specific item description contained within in a tooltip on the product page next to each item.


Related Product Pages (optional)

Nomad offers a method to manually relate product pages to other product pages. This worksheet allows you to create these relations quickly in a spreadsheet.

Product Page Name 1

This field contains the product page name of the product page you would like to have related to the product page in the Product Page Name 2 field

Product Page Name 2

This field contains the product page name of the product page you would like to have related to the product page in the Product Page Name 1 field
