Quality Report (and not applicable field)

Using Sales Layer

 

One of the keys to success when it comes to selling your products in different marketplaces is the quality of the product information. For example, if your product is sold on Amazon, but with key information missing, then it’s more likely that a potential customer will buy the product from another vendor, who has provided a complete set of information, instead of from you.

To help with this, Sales Layer gives each item a Quality Score: a percentage value which reflects how complete the information on each product is. This can be seen in the corner of each product’s thumbnail. While it’s possible to control the Quality Score of each product individually, Sales Layer provides a specific section called the Quality Report where you can easily control and improve the quality of your product information.

When we click on Quality Report we have access to a summary of how complete our product information is, broken down into different sections.

We also have access to another tab, calledTables ,which provides us with a list of all the fields we have and a percentage score of how complete they are. If we click on one of the fields which has an imperfect score, we are taken to a new page which displays all those products that have their information for this field missing. From here we could switch to Excel mode and then comfortably complete the missing information, remember you can select which columns are displayed to make your data easier to work with.

Under the Tables tab you can also eliminate fields if you wish.

When completing editing a product’s information directly it's possible to specify that a certain field should not apply to the calculation of the Quality Score for that specific product. You can click on the grey icon next to the empty field and the name of the field will become crossed out. This means that the field is disregarded from the quality score. To make the field active again, all you need do is to type in it.

The Quality Report can even be printed so that it can be shared among departments or discussed in a meeting.

Regarding fields that do not apply: 

  • It is possible to set unused fields as being not applicable in bulk from ACTIONS (block action)
  • It is possible to hide the non-applicable fields so that users filling in the rest of the fields in the form can do so more comfortably without being distracted by them.
