The new Catalog page is where you can view, download, and upload the catalog requirements for your retail trading partner. Dsco makes it easy to see how your partner categorizes their items, and the download tool allows you to quickly obtain a template to upload your own items with.
Not every retail trading partner on Dsco uses the Catalog feature. For this reason the Catalog page is only accessible through this direct URL: https://app.dsco.io/catalogs
Access the catalog page by going to https://app.dsco.io/catalogs. There you will see what catalogs have been created and activated by your trading partner.
Select the category you would like to work on in the left hand Catalogs column. The category will expand to as many subcategories as your retailer has created.
Once you have selected the lowest subcategory, the Attributes column will populate with attribute fields specific to that category.
Guide to Attribute Indicators:
Green = Required. Your retailer requires your items to include this attribute on upload.
Blue = Recommended. Your retailer does not require this attribute for the item to load, but it is recommended to do so.
Grey = Optional.
1) Select the "three dot" menu on the side of the catalog you would like to download and select Download Template Spreadsheet.
This will download a .xlsx spreadsheet with the required attributes needed to upload your item(s) to Dsco.
2) Fill out the excel spreadsheet with your items, including sku (Dsco required) and any other attributes required by your trading partner (highlighted in green).
Note that column color highlights correspond with the attribute indicators shown above.
The template also includes columns with additional attributes Dsco supports but are not required by your retailer. Some suppliers may want to use these Dsco attributes for their own systems (e.g. "upc", "partner_sku", etc).
3) Once the spreadsheet is filled with your items for that category, you can upload it back to Dsco through the same "three dot" menu.
After you upload your catalog, Dsco will immediately validate your items to ensure they meet your retailer's catalog requirements. If there are any errors, Dsco will show a dialog box with a summary and give you the option to (a) retry uploading a corrected file or (b) skip the row with the error and continue validating.
In addition to the error dialog, Dsco will also present errors on your Exceptions page where you can also view and take action to resolve. For more information see our support article: Exceptions Page.
Be sure to select each catalog and sub-catalog to ensure you are providing all of your available inventory to your retail trading partner.
