The Tookstock web app gives you the ability to import your existing inventory from a .csv file. The following steps show you how to properly format your inventory for upload.
Navigate to the inventory page and select Import Inventory. This will pull up the import page which lets you download our inventory template.
Download the .csv template.
Populate the .csv file with your inventory data. This can be done with a spreadsheet tool, such as Excel. When you're done, be sure to save the file as a .csv
Please see the formatting tips below for information on successfully populating the .csv file.
Upload the .csv file that you just edited. Your new items will show up in the inventory list as soon as the import has finished.
If you have multiple locations configured, the app will allow you to choose which location should receive the quantities you may have entered in your spreadsheet. Imported items will be added to all other locations with a default value of 0.
It's important for your inventory data to be formatted properly in order to ensure a successful import. The guidelines below provide some tips for filling out the template.
Both the "Item Name" and "Variation Option 1 Name" fields are required in order to import an item. If either of these fields are left blank the row will be skipped.
Each row in the template represents one item and variation (every item is required to have at least one variation). You can create an item with multiple variations by creating another row with the same item name and modifying the other fields. The example above shows two items with multiple variations. The T-Shirt item (Red) has three variations - "Small / Blue", "Medium / Blue", and "Large / Blue", and the Jacket (Blue) has two variations - "Medium / Gray" and "Large / Gray."
