Administrator Functions

Generally, the "PDF Productsheets" module has no settings, however, to be able to generate PDF files for the locale-specific product data, the multi-languages parameters are to be configured. For this go to Administration > Multi-Languages, activate the "Multi-Languages" module and choose the desired language(s) from the drop-down list that appears once you click the Input language list field:

Multi-lang setup

Click the Save button to apply the configuration or Cancel to abort the process.

User Functions

After the module installation, the Product Sheet option appears both in the single record actions menu on the product records list/plate view page

Click this option to open the product sheet generator pop-up:

Generator pop-up

Please, note that the Locale parameter is available only when the "Multi-Languages" module is activated by the administrator.

Product Sheet Settings

In the product sheet generator pop-up, specify the following parameters:

  • Product sheet template – the list of templates for generating the PDF files. The Default product sheet template option is defined by default. To expand the list of templates, please, contact us or your developer.

  • Channel – the list of channel names that are linked to the given product record. The Only global scope option is defined by default, i.e. all product attribute values with the Global scope will be generated to the PDF file. To generate channel-specific attribute values (including multichannel attributes), select the desired channel name in the list:

    Channel

    Please, note that if there are no channels linked to the product record, then the Channel drop-down list will contain only one option – Only Global Scope.

  • Locale – the list of locales according to the options configured by the administrator. For each locale, a separate PDF file should be generated.

Product Sheet Generation

Click the Generate product sheet button to start the operation. As a result, the PDF file, generated according to the defined parameters, will be open in a new tab:

Generated PDF

Here all the data from the OVERVIEW and PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES panels of the given product record are displayed.

Please, note that in the generated PDF file, None is shown for the unfilled data fields and attributes.

If there are no records on the IMAGES panel of the given product at all or with the channel scope defined in the product sheet generator, there will be no image preview in the generated PDF file:

No image

The generated product sheets can be used later as attachments to the reports, tables, printed catalogs with product information, etc.

Generating Mass Product Sheets

TreoPIM also supports the ability to generate product sheets for up to 200 products at the same time via the Generate PDF mass action on the product records list view:

Mass generation

The product sheet generator pop-up appears:

Since only global product values are generated for the products array, there is no Channel parameter in this pop-up.
