How Do I Mass Update Product Attributes & Categories (eg. Website: Product Category)

I am trying to do a mass import and then mass update of various product attributes (eg. gross weight) as well as product categories for the e-commerce frontend. If anyone has any suggestions on how this might be achieved either by mass update by CSV file or mass update by selecting the products in the Sales >> Products I would appreciate your input.

can you add which version of odoo/OpenERP you are referring to? I have suspicion it is v8

Hi Gunnar, I'm running an older branch (a few weeks old) of the master branch of v8.

To update product categories for a product, I recommend you to export the list of product categories first to create their xml id.

Then export all the products for which you want to do a mass update with the columns that you need to update (import-compatible export). When you export products, they will get an xml id too.

In the csv file, fill the new product category with the corresponding xml id. Keep the product xml IDs in your import file, so they will not be created again, but only updated.

For other fields such as gross weight, you can just enter the values. No need for xml IDs in that case.

There is also a module made by Serpent :

You can have a look at it on youtube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BH0o74A748
