Exclude products with the Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list

Exclude product feed exports with the Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list feature, formerly known as Default List, in Productsup.

Introduction

The Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list feature, formerly known as the Default List, lets you specify products in your data feed that you want to include or exclude from your export. It's a list containing terms that the Productsup platform accepts or skips when it matches your previously specified words. It works similar to the Skip Row if Value In box rule box, but you can share the list with other sites. And when you modify your data feed, the platform automatically updates the list.

You exclude particular products from feeds by using a list of values, including product IDs. For example, In Germany, food manufacturers face restrictions on which ingredients they can add to their products. To exclude products that contain prohibited ingredients, you can use the Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list.

With the Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list, you manually enter all the values used for exclusion. With the Dynamic Inclusion/Exclusion list, you can upload or import a list source file in CSV format via URL containing the values.

This document contains instructions on setting up a Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list to exclude products from your feed data.

Set up the Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list

  3. In Name, give your Inclusion/Exclusion List a custom name to help you identify it. You can later edit the custom name.

  4. (Optional) Toggle on the Share list button and select one of the following:

    1. Account level - Share this list with all sites across all projects under this account.

    2. Project level - Share this list with all sites under this project.

    Note

    If you share the list at the account or project level, the platform updates the list during an import from the original site where you created the list.

  5. Select Add.

Add values to the Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list

After creating your Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list, see the following to add values:

  1. Within your newly-created list, enter a value you want to use for excluding a product in Search. Select Add to save your value. Repeat this step as necessary to continue adding values to your Standard Inclusion/Exclusion list.

  2. If you make changes to the source file, perform an import to update the list.

Add the Blacklist rule box to exclude products

  1. When you have completed your list, go to Data View from the site's main menu and choose the item you want to blacklist.

  2. Next, select Edit in the column containing the item and add the Blacklist rule box.

    Note

    The Blacklist rule box is not case-sensitive and does not require an exact word match.

  3. In the Blacklist field, choose the newly-created list from the drop-down menu.

  4. Select Save.

If the terms from your blacklist appear for any item, the blacklist prevents the item(s) from being exported. In Data View, skipped items appear orange. When you hover over them, you can see a displayed message that explains why the blacklist excluded items.
