This article covers the following aspects:
The manufacturers are able to get reports for their uploaded catalogs, for each market individually in order to control and maintain their data. This is very useful, when e.g. some products need to be visible in markets where the requested language(s) does/do not exist.
In order a manufacturer to view the reports, one has to click on the 'View reports' section. If the person who logged in has administrator rights, then he has access to all functions of the Online Catalog if not, then only the respective areas are enabled.
There are two options available for the manufacturers; either to get an overview of the current uploaded catalog, or to get an overview per market. These can help them to have an overview of the products that are available on the server as well as on each market.
In order a manufacturer to check the entire catalog that has been uploaded, one has to press on the 'Open' button (1).
By doing so, the manufacturer can see the current uploaded catalog in a tree view.
The market report is the most detailed report of the Online Catalog, which can be created for each market individually. In order to generate such a report the manufacturer has to select the market(s) (1) from the 'market selection' dropdown menu and press the 'Open' button (2). In order to select multiple markets, the manufacturer has to select one market, press and hold the 'CTRL' button and select the rest of the markets using his mouse.
When the desired market(s) has been selected and the 'Open' button is pressed, then the market report opens in a new window and looks like the picture below.
The market report consists of two sections; the 'Market's language' section on top and the 'Product section' right below. The required market languages appear on the top of the page, while the available catalog items of this market are shown below.
What does this mean in concrete:
The requested languages by the market that are contained in each catalog item, are marked with green colour, while the requested languages by the market but not existing in the catalog item are marked with red colour. The blue colour of a language name means that this language is contained in the catalog item but it is not requested by the market.
Requested languages: English, Danish, German
You can see in the picture below that all of the products have a missing language 'Danish', while some products contain even more languages than requested by the market.
