  • Schedule - Select the Checked.png Active checkbox to import products on a set schedule. Click the Run task Button.png Run task button to run the scheduled task right now. Data that has changed since the Last Sync date will be synchronized. This date will be updated automatically after a sync, or it can be manually edited to adjust which data will be synchronized.

Data that has changed since the Last Sync date will be synchronized. This date will be updated automatically after a sync, or it can be manually edited to adjust which data will be synchronized.
  • Field Mapping - Use the icon buttons on the right side of the table to edit the field mappings. After a product has been pushed to WooCommerce, any changes made to the product in Fishbowl will update the following fields in WooCommerce: Title, Description, SKU, Price, Weight, Tags, Meta Title, and Meta Description.
  • Weight UOM - If the weight UOM isn't set in WooCommerce, the default UOM listed here will be used.
  • Size UOM - If the size UOM isn't set in WooCommerce, the default UOM listed here will be used.
  • Product Tree Filter - The export can be limited to certain product tree categories. If this field is left blank, all products will be included in the export.
  • Export All Products - Selecting this option will push all Fishbowl products to WooCommerce, regardless of the last sync date. Selecting this option may cause the Product Export sync to take a long time to run, depending on how many products you have. The Product Tree Filter will still apply.


Inventory Update

  • Schedule - Select the Checked.png Active checkbox to export inventory levels to WooCommerce on a set schedule. Click the Run task Button.png Run task button to run the scheduled task right now. Data that has changed since the Last Sync date will be synchronized. This date will be updated automatically after a sync, or it can be manually edited to adjust which data will be synchronized.
  • Location Group - When selected, the Available For Sale inventory quantity will be used from this location group only. If left blank, the quantity from all location groups will be used.
  • Product Tree Filter - The export can be limited to certain product tree categories. If this field is left blank, all products will be included in the export.

Troubleshooting

  • Only new orders are imported. Orders are not updated once they have been imported. Returns and refunds are not imported.
  • The attributes and IDs for orders and products can viewed or modified by clicking the Small.Shopify.png Shopify button at the top of the Small.Sales Order.png Sales Order module and the Small.Product.png Product module.
  • To view the scheduled tasks for the Small.Shopify.png Shopify module, open the Small.Schedule.png Schedule module.
  • A scheduled task can be run manually by double-clicking the task.
  • Enter an email address in the Small.Schedule.png Schedule module to receive error notifications.
  • To view the history of a scheduled task, including the result/error, click the History Icon Button.png History button in the Small.Schedule.png Schedule module.
  • More details about recent errors can be viewed by opening the Small.Data.png Data module and clicking the Server Log Button.png Server Log button.
  • Check for multiple versions of the Shopify.jar file in C:\Program Files\Fishbowl\plugins\ or \Applications\Fishbowl\plugins\ on a Mac. If there are two Shopify versions, exit the Fishbowl Server and remove the older version on all client and server computers.
  • If you are getting a Failed to run scheduled task error, it is likely due to upgrading from WooCommerce 2.x to 3.x because of the layout change within the plugin. The following fix re-installs the plugin, which will require you to re-enter your store login information and import/export settings. Make sure to write that information down before proceeding with the following steps.
    First, open the Plugin module and click the Uninstall button for the WooCommerce plugin. Then restart the Fishbowl server. Next, open the Plugin module, click the Install button for the WooCommerce plugin, and then restart the Fishbowl server again. Finally, re-enter the store login information and the import/export settings and then click the Save button.
