Export Products to Monsoon Screen

In this Topic: Show


The Export Products to Monsoon screen is opened via the Monsoon Product Export entry in the Cart Functions tab of the Maintenance Menu, if it has been enabled by the Monsoon implementation staff. The purpose of this screen is to allow Order Manager product information to be uploaded to the Monsoon shopping cart.

A Field List specifies the Order Manager fields to be exported into the text file. The program provides a default Field List for the user's convenience or they may configure and save a Field List of their own. Custom and Advanced Custom inventory field values can be exported by selecting them from the drop-down lists.

Click the Show link next to "In This Topic" at the top of this page to see a series of links in outline form, which can be used to quickly jump to that section of the topic.

In addition, major topics may provide a brief synopsis of a field's purpose or direct the reader to the appropriate section of the topic by scrolling over the image. To return to the previous location within the same page, right-click the mouse and select [Back].

If clicking a field directs the reader to a different Knowledge Base topic, it will open in a new tab or window, leaving the currently viewed topic open. The browser's settings determine whether a new tab or window is opened.
