Batch operations (one click linking and synchroniznig)

Prestashop 1.6 maintenance was ended on June 30, 2019, so we will not continue to develop the Prestashop 1.6 plugin for this platform. 

We recommend upgrades your shop platform to version 1.7 of Prestashop.

One click (automatic) linking

It is possible to link (assign) many Orbitvu presentations to many Prestashop products within one click. The algorithm compares Orbitvu Presentation's SKU with Prestashop's product reference code and if they match, the Orbitvu presentation is automatically linked (assigned) to the Prestashop product.

 

Note! Orbitvu presentation's SKU can be given in Orbitvu Station during project creation.

In order to execute "Auto linking" script please go to the "Modules ->Orbitvu Self Hosted -> Configure" and scroll down to the bottom of the page to the section "Cron jobs".

Before executing "Auto linking" script, let's see which products have assigned Orbitvu presentations.

Let's execute "Auto linking" script.

Note! This script may consume a lot of time depending number of products in Prestashop and number of Orbitvu presentations. That is why please check your "max_execution_time" server setting to avoid errors.

After a while, you should receive success info.

Let's check if any Orbitvu presentations have been linked to Prestashop products. To do this, go to the "Catalog -> Products".

As you can see, above screen shows that Samsung Gear Fit and Gino Rossi bag presentations have been automatically linked to the Prestashop products by SKU and reference code match.

This feature saves a lot of time because we don't have to manually product by product assign Orbitvu presentations.

Tip! You can add "Auto linking" url to your server CRON jobs to avoid manual executing the script.

Auto synchronizing

Sometimes when you manually modify Orbitvu presentation files on a serever (i.e: SKU change in "content.xml" file), it is necessary to update Orbitvu presentation in a shop (keep Orbitvu presentation up to date with server files).

To do this, we should execute "Auto synchronizing" script and all Orbitvu presentations will be updated.
