Managing Imported Data

The Woo Importer app allows you to view a CSV summary of your imports and to delete any items you've imported before. In this article we'll cover how to do this.

Prerequisites

This article assumes that you:

Viewing Previous Imports

We refer to an 'import' as anytime the Woo Importer app uploads data to your Shopify store. In practice this means either products or orders.

You can see a list of previous import by opening up the Woo Importer app. You should see the page that allows you to manage your import:

(If you don't see this page, click on the  Manage button on the top right of the app and choose the WooCommerce site you're importing.)

To view a list of previous imports click the  Advanced button on the top right of the app. If you scroll down you will see a page like this:

The page will list each import along with the options to either view a CSV summary or delete the imported items.

CSV Summary of an Import

The Woo Importer app generates a CSV summary of each import you run. The summary will show which WooCommerce items match up to which Shopify items as well as any errors in the import. You can download the file by clicking on the  CSV Summary button on the Advanced page of the app.

The CSV summary will look like this:

The mapping of WooCommerce to Shopify items can be useful if you need to import additional data from WooCommerce and need to line it up with the correct products.

Deleting Imported Items

Sometimes it's helpful to start from a clean slate. If you want to remove items you've imported to Shopify, click on the  Delete All button on the Advanced page. The Woo Importer app will remove the products or orders for you:

Note: If items are deleted it is not possible to recover them. If you plan on re-importing data from WooCommerce make sure that your WooCommerce site is still accessible (in other words, if you've already moved your domain to Shopify and want to reimport data, contact us before deleting anything).
