Importing Matrix Options for Items

You can use the Import Assistant to add matrix options for some types of item records. You can do this import instead of using the Matrix Item Assistant or creating matrix items manually.

An item matrix, which enables tracking your items by options such as size and color, consists of a parent item and subitems, or children. Each combination of matrix options is stored as a separate item record. For example, a parent item record for a sweater could have a list of subitems, with each subitem record representing a different size and color combination.

You can import parent and child item records together in a single CSV file. A limit of 2000 child matrix items is permitted for each parent matrix item.
