Manually changing product names

If you need to change the name of a single product, you can enter a new name into the product record and save it. If you need to change the name of many products, it may be faster to use a product details import by following these steps:

Changing product names by import

  1. Create a spreadsheet file that has a column with all of your current product names (an easy way to do this is by exporting your product details).
  2. Add a new column and call it “Desired Name”.
  3. For each product you want to change the name of, enter the new name into the Desired Name column.


  4. When you’ve finished adding new names, save the file as a CSV (comma-delimited) file.
  5. Open the inFlow Web app and click Main Menu > Import.
  6. Select the Product Details data type, Browse to the file you just saved, then click Next.
  7. On the next screen, click Edit data mapping.
  8. Under the Product name field, click Change name.
  9. Match the Desired Name column to the Desired Name field and the column with your current product names to the Current Name field by selecting them from the drop-down lists.
  10. Click Next to update all of the product names.

Note: You can’t undo the import, however you can restart from step 1 if you want to change your product names again.
