Inventory - Bulk Update Item Codes

Started by Sonabh Bubna in Feature Requests | Idea

Ability to update the item codes in Bulk without losing their history.
Merged: Inventory - Bulk update item codes

I would like to find out the possible option to replace old product codes by the new ones without deleting them as I need their history and trade details. I have over 1600 products and therefore do not think it will be a wise idea to replace them individually.

Would like to find out if anyone was successful doing this. Or any other thoughts.

I am trying to do the same thing and found this
It looks like you can't change item code with a bulk update, must go into each one individually to save past data.

Cheers, Sonabh! We'll keep an eye on demand here. In the meantime, don't forget to kickstart the support for this by adding in your own vote too. 😀
