The portfolio status page is a powerful tool that shows where products are in the update process (View All - Loaded), product market visibility, and product status. Here, ‘visibility’ refers to geographic restrictions, missing prices, and products marked ‘do not print’ if your company uses SevenFifty price books.
Use the portfolio status tools to:
- See the progress of products being loaded to SevenFifty (View all)
- See whether a product requires clarification, which includes products with sizing or vintage errors as a result of a product file upload (Needs Clarification)
- Determine product visibility on SevenFifty’s marketplace, including status, and market-specific information like missing prices, geographic restrictions, and whether the product is marked ‘do not print’ (price books) (Product Status)
- Find products that have been marked ‘Do not load’ (Denied)
- Reactivate products with no prices, an inactive status (end of vintage, discontinued), or both if your company uses the SevenFifty interface to manage their SevenFifty marketplace. Distributors that submit files through SevenFifty should continue to manage portfolios by submitting updated files.
Note: For companies that manage their portfolio through the SevenFifty interface, finding and accessing all current and past products has never been easier. However, if your company sends files we strongly recommend that changes be made on the update file since files will overwrite any previous changes made through the SevenFifty interface.
Shows a product’s Load Status: Researching, Matched, Clarification, and Denied.
Products start in ‘Researching’, which indicates that the product hasn’t been matched yet by a data specialist.
If a specialist finds an existing match or has enough information to create a new SevenFifty record, the status changes to ‘Matched’. Only then does a product appear in Browse* and in price books. ‘Suggest Correction’ button also appears upon product matching.
Products that require more information before they can be matched or have a file-related vintage or sizing error get marked with the ‘Clarification’ badge and a message is sent to the company’s data contact(s) requesting the specific information required to load the product.
Denied products are intentionally not loaded. Reasons for products being denied include private labels and ‘do not load’ instructions from the distributor. For more information see Which products appear in ‘Denied’.
* In order for products to appear in Browse they must have current month pricing and an active status (active, limited availability, coming soon, and deals)
These products require clarification before they can be loaded, including vintage and sizing errors. The data specialist making the request will specify exactly what information is needed in order to load the product.
Clarifications will only appear to Data Contacts and can be answered by selecting ‘Product Clarifications’ in the left panel or by clicking ‘Resolve’.
To resolve Clarifications, click Product Clarifications in the left panel.
The product status board gives detailed visibility information about every product in your company’s portfolio. This information includes status, missing prices, hidden (from buyers), geographic restrictions, and if the product is marked ‘do not print’ if your company uses price books.
Products can be searched by product name or SKU, and market-specific availability if your company operates in more than one market. Information in columns can also be sorted (ascending, descending) by clicking the arrow at top of the column.
If your company manually maintains its portfolio solely through the SevenFifty interface, you can also easily reactivate products using ‘Edit’.
Note: Changing availability or pricing on products is not recommended if your company sends a daily update file since the update file will overwrite any information edited on the SevenFifty management interface.
‘Denied’ indicates that a product has intentionally not been loaded. Denied items include private labels, do not load instructions from the distributor, and promotional items.
