Before beginning production on an editorial project, you’ll first need to import your products. This will allow your products to be available to be assigned to your project deliverables Below we’ve outlined the various ways to import product data into projects in Creative Force Editorial.
Finding the Products Page
To find the products page, first, select your project within Editorial and navigate to the Components tab. From there you’ll want to select Products from the drop-down. This is where all existing products live as well as where you are able to import new products.
