[Free script] Prestools - mass edit and other maintenance tools


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Prestools is a suite of user-friendly and .powerful tools to mass edit your products, orders and categories. It is a kind of Swiss Army knife that runs outside your backoffice. You can download it here and find a manual here.

Prestools was started in 2012 by putting together a small selection of tools for Prestashop. It has since grown steadily to become a comprehensive set of tools for maintaining Prestashop and Thirty Bees. It is one of the most popular downloads on the Prestashop forum.

The main parts are:

product-edit: great options for mass editing more than 50 product fields. Add categories, change prices, update descriptions - for hundreds of products at once. 

product csv: a flexible tool to generate csv files.

product-sort: an easy way to sort products inside a category. From position 500 to 1 in a blink. With the visual sort option you can see immediately how things will look.

prodcombi: edit and oversee properties of combinations of a number of products at once.

order-edit: adding and deleting products and changing prices without problems.

order-search: make a selection on carrier, payment type, status, etc. or just search. With csv export option.

category-edit: useful for editing metadata and descriptions for SEO

combi-edit: assign pictures to your combinations quickly

combi-copy and combi-delete: copy, modify and delete attribute combinations using one product as a template

attribute-list and feature-list: see how many products use each feature and attribute and get a product list.

regenerate images for selections of products

cleanup images: save on disk space by cleaning up images of deleted products

shop rescue: turn off overrides and non-Prestashop modules when due to some bug you can no longer login in the backoffce.

override-list and module-list: get lists of modules and of overrides and the modules might own them.

eu-tax: get a quick overview how much you sold in each of the EU countries and how much VAT you withheld in the process

integrity checks:  find and fix database and file corruption.

Installation: Unzip the downloaded file and copy the resulting files to a subdirectory below your admin directory (do not install as a PS module!).You can access the program in the browser like "www.myshop.com/myadmin/mydir/login1.php". You will be welcomed by a login screen: the default username is "[email protected]" and the default password is "opensecret". Please adapt your security settings in the "settings1.php" file. There is a mini-module included for integration into the Thirty Bees backoffice.

There is a demo-installation available. Username and password are the default. Below you find a view of the product-edit page where the description field has been made editable:

Prestools is compatible with Prestashop 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 and Thirty Bees.

There are a few parts in product-edit that you need to buy at the Prestools website. However, over 95% of the script is free.

Among the files you will find a file prestoolssuite-module.zip. You can install this file as a module. It adds a link to your Prestools installation in the Catalog menu of the backoffice.

If you find a problem, please update Prestools to its latest version before you report it here. When reporting, please mention your Thirty Bees version.

Follow the installation instructions! This is not a module!

Great tool. I was using the free version for some time, and last week I bought the paid version for the "Features" edit ability.

Thanks for this nice and so useful tool, and I hope this new thread dont get deleted cause the previous had tons of info that now got lost..

Hi @musicmaster

Is it possible on the Mass Update (on product or combination edits) where you SET a value to a field to use variables?

eg.. Mass Update a reference field by using product_id as a variable [ something like %id% ]

You can do something like that with the "replace from field" option in the mass update menu.

Not useful for the case I need..

I want to give on the product combinations the following Reference pattern:

[CAT_ID]-[Product_ID]-[xxx]  

[xxx] is a number that i can give with "Insert After", but the first two var's... I dunno..

 

--

Also, is it possible to export to csv a given List as it appears on Product Combis (on Product Edit we can). At the moment I just select all rows and copy/paste them on spreadsheet..

In the next release I will add an option to copy the product and category id's. That should solve your problem there.

Exporting Product combi's is not possible at the moment and not planned either.
