Hi, I am evaluating your excellent product. So far so good!

But the products I am importing all show the red ribbon on them, as new products. I don't want them to show as new product. What field do I need to change in import to make that happen.

Thanks,

steve

Volodymyr, thank you very much. That would work. Is there a way to 'backdate' the import, i.e. make it look like it was imported say a month ago. Is there any field in your s/w that can do that, or the timestamp is automatically done by Presta in the backend.

If not, your solution would work great! And thanks for the screenshot!

Hello Steven!

Thank you for your re-post!

Unfortunately the Store Manager does not allow to change the timestamp as it is automatically assigned by PrestaShop.

However the Store Manager has a built in Raw Table Editor, that allows to make changes directly to the database. You can find "ps_product" table which contains "date_add" and "date_upd" fields: http://screencast.com/t/aqCoH6Fed
Important Note: we strongly recommend you to backup your database before making any changes in Raw Table Editor.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
