VM Mass Update's main focus is allowing for quick mass value updating of all major product fields, such as price, stock units, category, publishing state, and many more. Increasing your products prices by 10%, for example, is a matter of seconds, even for thousands of products.
The other strong features of VM Mass Update are powerful import/export functions for products. You are able to quickly import/update products from CSV files, or otherwise automatically create products by uploading a collection of product images. The export features allow you to export your product data to CSV, Excel, PDF and HTML formats.
VM Mass Update is currently compatible with Joomla! 1.5, 1.7, 2.5 and VirtueMart 1.1 & 2.0.
So, do you have a virtuemart store and need to (mass) update your products, this is the extension to use.
In this case with the Mass Update for VirtueMart, the software really is a must have for stores that have a ton of products. On my client's store, they have many small products that sell for just a few dollars instead of a few products that are expensive. This means that updating the products through the standard VirtueMart store interface is a very big chore. On standard Virtumart, one must go to each product individually and make your change.
Say you wanted to change your price by 20%. That would be a nightmare without Mass Update. WITH Mass Update it is only a few clicks! Without it would take a few days to accomplish this and you would have too open every single product and change it.
But that's not all! I had an issue with the software where I had a setting wrong ELSEWHERE on the site that caused a conflict with the Mass Update. Globacide had me up and running within MINUTES!!!! It was awesome.
In the many years I have been working with Joomla, I have run into developers that I would consider great and I have run into very few developers that are even better than great. That's Globacide, better than great. I get compliments when I deploy their software, they fix issues without hesitation, and they are friendly and helpful.
If you have a bunch of products in your VirtueMart store and you want to allow for the swift editing of these products em masse, this is the best way to do it.
I did initially have an issue with response over a problem i had with VM MASS UPDATE but truthfuly, part of the blame was mine and my lack of testing functionality or reading the in depth user guide provided. Emilian has resolved any concerns i initially had with this product.
If like me, you look after Virtuemart stores for clients and we all know the endless issues we have to deal with Virtuemart and you need that little something "EXTRA" to aid management, then this isn't the product for you, if your looking for something to TOTALLY transform your Virtuemart products, custom fields/attributes, fast and efficient control of multiple products through an impressive and easy to use interface THEN BY THIS PRODUCT, IT IS OUTSTANDING!
Truly, Emilian is amazing, the thought and ease of use of the VM MASS UPDATE component is worth THREE times the current price. In all my years of using Joomla i have NEVER come across such an outstanding component, truly the time this saves on product management is worth it's weight in gold. I shall keep a close eye on future product developments from Globacides, PHENOMINAL, dig deep, pay up it's worth EVERY peeny and more. Then simply install, sit back and sigh a sound of relief, at last some-one has finally turned an aspect of Virtuemart that sucked your will to live into a painless and simply BRILLIANT way of managing client content.
Well done and thank you whole heartedly for a truly outstanding effort, thank you so much, this has changed VM2 for me in ways i could not imagine, you are EXACTLY what the Joomla community needs, think outside the box, understand the users needs, impliment an easy to use interface and inspiring functions....you will find Globacide Solutions.
This extension is saving me countless hours of tedious labor. It makes updating my store (over 4000 items).
I have been wanting an extension like this since my first Virtuemart web store. The extension far exceeds my expectations and performs flawlessly right out of the box.
Support is fast and effective. many thanks to the developer for creating this awesome product.
I did have a minor issue with installation but these guys jumped on the issue and resolved almost instantly!!
This component not only manages all Virtuemart product content but you can import /export, export pdf price books etc etc well worth the money
A Big thank you!!
