Brand Catalog Creation


The brand catalog is created automatically by Digital Market when the system detects new or updated catalog data files. Only users with 'Account Manager' user role are permitted to upload and manage these catalog files. Find detailed specifications and requirements for these files in the Digital Market Data Integration Support and the GoAnywhere - File Types Supported articles. 


  • Products (.csv, .xls, or .xlsx) -- filename must be products_brand.csv
  • Features  (.csv, .xls, or .xlsx)-- filename must be features_brand.csv


Note: 'brand' within the filename should be replaced with your specific brand name. 



How to Upload Catalog Files


Digital Market requires brand Account Managers to use GoAnywhere FTP (file transfer protocol) in order to upload the required catalog files. As part of Digital Market registration and onboarding, brand Account Managers should have received access credentials and instructions via email.


Step 1: Login to GoAnywhere

If you haven't logged in yet, please refer to the Getting Started with GoAnywhere article for more information.


Step 2: Go to the Right Spot


Upon successful login, you will land in the "/Home" file directory:



Navigate to the appropriate file folder to upload your files according to the table below:


folderfile(s)
/ (Home)>data>inbound
  • products_brand.csv
  • features_brand.csv
/ (Home)>images>inbound


Step 3: Upload Files


Two ways to upload files:

  1. Click 'Upload' to find and upload files via File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac)
  2. Drag & Drop files directly into the blank/white space of the browser window


Note:
Make sure you upload the appropriate files into the appropriate 'inbound' folder. 


Why? 
The Digital Market catalog creation tool was designed to scan both the 'data/inbound' and 'images/inbound' directories every 15 minutes in search of new (or updated) files. When it finds them, it kicks into action to create (or apply changes to) the brand catalog.



Review your catalog files in the 'processed' folders


The processed folder allows you to view the most recent file that has been uploaded to your brand's catalog. This is helpful in the event you'd like to download a processed file, make any necessary changes to it and re-upload the file. Please note that you must treat this updated file as a new document and upload it to the correct /inbound/ directory, according to the table in Step 2 above.
