Importing Packs

It would be a useful utility for us to be able to build "Pack" products (groups of products sold as one package) through an import process, directly into the ps_pack table. I have tried doing so manually using SQL, but there are apparently other fields that need to be adjusted as well. There is little to no documentation on being able to do this other than through a manual process in PrestaShop's dashboard. I have several thousand Packs that I'd like to build -- some small, some containing hundreds of products. The dashboard method is not practical.

Is there any information available for which fields must be adjusted for creating Packs?

Yes, I agree that there absolutely should be an easier way to create product packs... for example, I strated using distributor price list to create my Product uploads, I simply add in all the additional columns od data directly into their price list.

However I ran into a situation recently where one of my distributes, has separate part numbers as well as pricing for 2 or 3 parts or items that actually only make one product.

For example a sectional sofa, There's a left side and a right side, as well as a foot stool... These three parts make op one sofa sectional..

After uploading the CSV file, I realized, that there's 3 identical pictures of the same product where each of the three part uses the same picture of the whole set. And each part has it's own pricing... However Customers can very easily check out with only one part assuming they are getting the entire set... I realize this could be halted by inserting a lot more instruction about needing all three parts to make the complete product...

But there should be an easy way for me to just tag the 3 parts, in a new complete product listing and have the 3 individual parts become hidden from customers view (except that maybe they are listed as parts of the complete product they are viewing) So that when scrolling through the product listings you don't see 3 of every product image being listed as separate products, when they are technically just separate parts of one product .

Please notify me when there is some update to Store Manager, I do have the professional, and I was thinking that it already handled this issue... IF it does, I've not figured our how to do it, and I've watched every Video, read several tutorials.. and no luck so far... As for Right now it seems I will have to manually add all three parts into a new product listing, and just delete the parts.. I have over 5000 products, so that's not going to be an easy task.

Oh, I seen where you mentioned Votes... I have 5000 Facebook friends, I could have a voting party, if all we need is more Votes... lol Just kidding, but do please help if you have a solution.

I agree with this request ! We would like to manage the Store Manager "PACK" product detail on Excel "en masse".
Store Manager does not have the option to import product packs for the moment with Excel. We can only add them manually... Nevertheless, when we wave hundreds of products with the same reference in pack, it is too long to add them manually one by one...
thank you in advance,
have a nice day.
Best regards.
