Do you feel that you have lost the overview on your product feed?

This often happens when products in your feed change, go out of stock or your feed is created based on smaller supplier feeds.

Are you looking to have a bird’s eye view on your feed? Reviewing the INPUT feed is often the best way to troubleshoot any problems you might have with your OUTPUT feed.

Within DataFeedWatch there are several ways to check your source feed online in the app, and offlineHere, we will show you how to quickly check the source feed and gain a full perspective of the input feed.

 

1. Check the Source Feed in the Feed Tool

If you need to gain insight on your input feed fast you can go to your DataFeedWatch Store and from the Options menu select Show Products.

This will allow you to review all the products you have in your INPUT feed.

A. Search the Products in the Input Feed

At the top of the page you can review the number of products in your data feed

You can choose to see the products based on any criteria or field from your source feed. Let’s say you’d want to review all the products where availability is 3, so that you can prepare an order to the supplier.

2. Review Source Feed Offline

Sometimes a complete overview of all product data in Excel works best. From the store Options select Download your products and this will download your entire feed as a CSV.
