The Brand Admin module is split into five main sections:
- Product Catalog Settings
- Imagery & Media
Each section has several subsections. Here’s a quick review of all the sections and subsections, and their primary purpose.
Product Catalog Settings
This section contains all the pieces to generate barcodes, customize linesheets, enable product banners, and edit products.
- Barcode Management: Select the barcode field that will generate the barcode numbers for your company. Or toggle on 'Generated by NuORDER' and a unique number will get generated by our system. Final step is to select a title & subtitle to appear above the barcode in the PDF.
- Barcode Printing: Utilize the filters to select the styles and then click on 'Generate Labels'. An email will get sent to you then you can print labels from your inbox.
- Manage Linesheets: Create a custom template to include brand specific fields. Follow the three steps and the new template will appear when generating a linesheet.
- Product Banners: Sold out banners when enabled will display across products in red, that hit 0 based off of inventory data. Or create a custom banner for unique text to display in Teal, Gray or Black. Click this article on how to add banners to a product.
- Product Gallery: The gallery is broken into three subsections - 'Merchandise', 'Enable' and 'Edit'.
Merchandise is where you can drag and drop products in the order of display for the Products tab - just remember to save. You can also create a new product on the fly.
Enable - if toggled on the products will appear in the products tab or toggle off to disable for brand user views.
Edit - click on the pencil to update product information or to select a banner to display.
This section contains your portal's architecture of data where you can import/upload new bulk data files and export existing information.
- Company Data: Upload new or edited Company information. At the bottom you can export the data in a few different formats. 'Archive All' will remove all of the existing companies - but the record will remain on file for your brand.
- Buyer Data: Importing buyer data for the first time will trigger a welcome email to your buyers depending on email settings configured in the brand portal set up. Exports can contain 'All Buyers' or 'Companies with No Buyers'.
- Inventory Data: Import inventory here and just remember to review 'A Few Reminders' next to the file drop. Export inventory in two different files or pull an ATS Report with Images. At the bottom of the page, you can 'Delete All', just be careful as this will remove existing inventory completely.
- Product Data: Manage your products through new imports and edits on exports. Review the blank templates on 'Add new products to NuORDER' as this reviews required fields. 'Archive All' will archive products in a swift click.
- Pricing: Import and export price sheets that can get applied at a customer level. Name the file as you want it to appear when assigning to customers.
- Archives: Access archived data of Products, Companies and Orders. Click on each tab and search for specific information and press the 'Unarchive' button to restore the data.
Imagery & Media
This section contains the product image and creative asset management for the brand portal.
- Dropbox Management: Link your Dropbox account and the product images will appear in NuORDER. They will automatically link depending on the file naming convention or drop into 'Image Management' to manually link to the data.
