    Instructions for the File Manager can be found here.

    1. View All: See, edit, or delete Gift Shows currently showing on the site.
    2. Add Event: Add a Show or select from a list of existing shows to modify.
    3. Export to file: If you want a CSV file with all show information.
    4. Import from file: If you want to upload an entire show schedule at once. Refer to the Export file for format.

      Each line of an import file should list one event.
      The values should be in the following order:

      title, start date, end date, location name, address 1, address 2, state, city, zip, comments

      In a csv file the values should be separated by commas,
      and in a tab delimited file they should be separated by tabs.

      2 line CSV Example:

      Trade Show,2003-1-13,2003-1-20,Location Name,1234 The Street,TX,Dallas,75207,Some Comments
      Trade Show Two,2003-2-13,2003-2-20,Other Location,555 The Ave,MI,Ann Arbor,48104,More Comments

      NOTE the Date Format: YYYY-MM-DD. Excel may change the date format, in which case you may need to open the file in Notepad or some other basic text editor in order to ensure that the date format is correct.

      Uploading the above file would insert two events into your list.

      NOTE: If you need to use an apostrophe, as in “America’s Mart” you need to “escape” it by putting a backslash in front of it like this: “America\’s”. The backslash won’t show but the file won’t upload without it.



  1. Image Configuration: Here you can decide the sizes (in pixels) you’d like your product images to be. Three sizes are created from each product image uploaded.
  2. Browse Images: (See the images you’ve uploaded and processed. Click the “S”, “M”, or “L” to see the existing small, medium and large images that have been created).
  3. Upload Image: Use this uploader to send a single product image and associate it with a SKU.
  4. Batch Import: Send as many as 10 product images at a time.
  5. Process Images: After uploading images (or a new spreadsheet) you must take this step to create the three sizes of images for the web site. If you change your image configuration (sizes), you should click “Force update of all images”, otherwise only new images are processed. Do Not use the Force update of all images if you choose to have alternate images or multiple images in your pop up/view details window.



You will use this button to upload and update your price list spreadsheet. See “Spreadsheet Instructions”.

  1. Search (you can search by SKU, product name and the product ID used by the system)
  2. View all items (Shows a list of all items in the database, whether active or not. Click “Edit” to see and modify details of each item).
  3. Add Item (if you need to just add a few items and don’t want to import an entirely new spreadsheet, use this feature. Remember to export the spreadsheet to get the most up-to-date version before editing and re-importing a new spreadsheet. See “Import from file” and “Export to file” below).
  4. Delete Item (Allows you to enter a SKU to delete. Don’t use this feature if an item is discontinued but has been ordered in the past and you want it’s information to continue to appear in “Archived Orders” –See under “Order Manager”).
  5. Deactivate Items without Picture (if you want to not show the “No Picture Available” images on the ordering pages you can click this selection and the items without images won’t show on the product picture pages and won’t be available for ordering).

  7. Volume Discount Table This feature is for use when you offer a discount at a level above your minimum. So if your minimum order is a quantity of 12, but you offer a discount at 20, you put “20” in the “Start Range” field. Then in the “Amount” field, you put the price after the discount. Finally, put the SKU number in the field for that and click “Add Volume Discount”.You can add as many discount levels as you need to.
  8. Import from file(This is how your product information gets to the web site database. You must upload either a CSV or Tab-delimited file, not Excel format. When you upload a spreadsheet, records for new items will be created, discontinued items will be de-activated, and new Categories will be created. “Update Database” should be left at “Yes”.

NOTE: Do not check “Clear All” unless a serious mistake has been made and you MUST clear out your entire item database. This will replace all items and categories with new system ID’s. It is only for extreme situations and is not advisable if you have had orders, since checking “Clear All” will change the system Ids for all items and past orders will not display correctly. This option will ask you to enter your username as a precaution).

  1. Export to file Click on the Export to file button and a box will pop up on the right. Click on Export All and an excel spreadsheet in the .csv format that lists all of the products and related information in your database will download. If you have are planning to make changes to the items you should first export the spreadsheet before making large changes to a spreadsheet you intend to re-import.
