We are recieving products from our suppliers in different formats. And converting their pricelists to openerp products. 

Problem: If we will import products twice - they will be duplicated. 

What possible ways to keep our data synchronized with external pricelists we have? 

Should we use import tool for updating products or there are any other built in tools availablie?

I tried odoo at the end of 2013. I fell in love in it and have been working with odoo as a freelancer for almost two years. In September 2015 I began operate as a Company and have 5 developers for now.

Products should not be dublicated if you specify same external id. E.g. your csv file can be look like this:


"some_prefix_1","Product 1", ....

"some_prefix_2","Product 2", ....
