LightCMS makes it easy for you to build a website and online store with content management. Unfortunately, creating products and updating your store isn’t nearly that easy. It requires you to get in up to your elbows with spreadsheets because that’s how your supply chain shares products with you. Ick!
We have a solution for that…one that’s going to make it just as easy to create and update products for you store!
We’ve been pulling all-nighters here at Venzee lately in order to get our integration with LightCMS up and running. Well, it’s done! Venzee’s LightCMS template is sitting in our Template Library waiting for action!
LightCMS merchants can use the template to easily create and update products for their store…at breakneck speed and with only an infinitesimally small use of spreadsheets. You have our word on that.
Are you ready to give it a try?
Step 1: Sign Up Here – No Charge – No Credit Card
We want you to go from zero-to-hero in no time flat. That’s why we’ve made signing up for Venzee crazy easy. No need to reach for your wallet. No credit card required. Once you’re done with the few-second-sign-up you’re ready to upload your data!
Step 2: Our LightCMS Template
Did you upload your data in Step 1? We’re going to refer to that from now on as your “Source Data” and we’re going to combine it with our LightCMS template to create what’s called a Dynamic Collection.
Think of a Dynamic Collection as the tool that you will use whenever you need to create or update products for your platform. As long as your Source Data’s format remains the same this is one-time process.
Ok, let’s go get the template out of storage and take it for a test drive! To get to our Template Library go to Dynamic Data and click the “Add” button. Find the LightCMS template, select it, and click “Next”.
Step 3: Making a Dynamic Collection Using the LightCMS Template
You’ve uploaded your Source Data to Venzee in Step 1 and selected the LightCMS template in Step 2. Now it’s time to create a Dynamic Collection.
Making a Dynamic Collection involves taking your Source Data’s attributes (size, color etc.) and mapping them against the template’s fields. If you’re doing this for the first time and you’re not quite sure where to start click on the question mark for some help.
You have some advanced features as well including the ability to perform mathematical calculations, create spec tables, and even add padding to help make your products look better on your platform.
After you’re done click “Generate” and then click “Export”. Venzee will send you an email containing the download link for your new Dynamic Collection. As we mentioned above, you will use your Dynamic Collection whenever you want to instantly turn out LightCMS-ready products from your supply chain-supplied Source Data.
Step 4: Leave It To Venzee!
Congratulations! You did it. You created a Dynamic Collection that you can now use whenever you need to create or update products for your store. The best part is that whenever your Source Data gets updated…so do your LightCMS-ready products!
Whenever your Source Data gets updated…so do your LightCMS-ready products!
