Product sheet

Product sheets are where you can view all the information collected by Connectif about each individual product in your ecommerce. Learning how to use its interface will help you review data about a product’s category, tags and other features to leverage in your strategies.


How to access it

You can access the product sheet via this route "Ecommerce > Catalog".




The main interface of the product sheet is made up of four blocks:

1. Creation, import and synchronization: to add new products manually, perform imports or review the history of imports, as well as to activate the bulk synchronization of products.

2. Search: to search for products in the catalog.

3. Filter: to filter product segments.

4. Product listing: to view, access the detail page and edit products.

When you access a particular product, two tabs will appear:

5. Detail: to review the data collected about the product.

6. Related products: to display products associated with that item. 



How it works

The product data sheet contains all the information that Connectif has collected about the product. By default, this information is shared with Connectif each time a user visits it on the site.

These tabs are particularly useful for knowing the properties of products that can be used in dynamic content or to create segments.

All the data in the product sheets comes from the ecommerce and, except for three fields (see point 2), cannot be edited from the product sheet. 


If the ecommerce catalog has data that Connectif does not collect, such as product sizes or colors, it can be included in the custom fields, by making a modification in the integration to bring that information to Connectif. 

1. Review product data

Locate the product in the product list (4) and click (Edit) to access its sheet.



Product properties

These are updated in Connectif by default every time a contact visits a product page, via the visited product tag (if the integration is via tags) or the visited product notification (if the integration is via JavaScript).

2. Edit product sheet data

Three pieces of information can be edited in the Detail tab (5) of a product sheet:

  • Priority: to sort the products and display those with higher priority, for example, in the "Fetch products" node.

  • Units in stock: to establish the quantity of that product remaining in stock.
  • Blacklist: to add products to a blacklist so that they are not recommended.

3. Update and verify a product 

After making changes to the product catalog in ecommerce, you can update and verify your information in Connectif using two methods:

  • Click the Check product now button, located on each product tab, to update the information for a specific item.


  • Click the Bulk product synchronization button, located in the creation, import and synchronization block (1) to update the entire catalog.



4. Check related products

Access the Related products tab (6) to check the items that Connectif automatically sets as related, according to the behavior of the contacts with respect to that product.

These are some of the criteria on which the product relationship mechanism is based:

  • Connectif sets a maximum of 40 related products to a specific item.
  • The product relationship is unidirectional and not always reciprocal. That is, if product "A" is related to product "B", product "B" does not necessarily have to be related to product "A". 
  • Connectif works with the relevance or "weight" of a relationship between two products. The higher the relevance, the stronger the relationship between the two products.
  • To increase relevance, Connectif takes into account:
    • Products that have been purchased together. This has a significant weight in the product relationship.
    • Products that have been visited following other products. This has a small weight in the product relationship.

The term "relevance" should not be confused with "priority". Relevance is an internal calculation of Connectif and cannot be modified. Priority is a product field that can be modified by the Connectif user or through the "Contact has visited a product" Tag.

  • Just as relevance can increase, it can also decrease if those factors are not met.
  • The relationship between two products can be lost if the relevance drops sufficiently.

If the products have variants and you want to recommend them independently, it is necessary to assign different IDs to each variant from the ecommerce so that they are included in the catalog.
