WooCommerce – How to Edit Hundreds of Global Attributes Quickly

Attributes are really important. They give identity to our products and help us satisfy our customers’ needs. However, we all know that editing products’ attributes is sometimes difficult because we have to open and edit them one by one. WooCommerce doesn’t allow us to edit them all at once.

But don’t worry. Here we show you how to edit hundreds of global attributes quickly using the WP Sheet Editor Taxonomies Spreadsheet plugin.

Install and activate the plugin

You can apply many changes to hundreds of global attributes with this plugin. It contains a powerful Bulk Edit tool that allows you to apply changes in seconds.

We’ve created a spreadsheet for each global attribute, so you decide which you’ll use.

  • Tags: go to Sheet Editor > Edit Product tags
  • Colors: go to Sheet Editor > Edit Product colors
  • Quality: go to Sheet Editor > Edit Product quality
  • Range: go to Sheet Editor > Edit Product range
  • Size: go to Sheet Editor > Edit Product size

In this case, we’ll use the colors spreadsheet, so please go to Sheet Editor > Edit Product Color.

1- Edit global attributes individually in the spreadsheet

In this spreadsheet you can quickly edit hundreds of product attributes.

You can edit all the columns. For example:

  • Slug
  • Status: active/delete
  • Description
  • Taxonomy: convert them into categories, or tags.
  • SEO Title
  • Etc.

Just change the values in the columns you wish, and then hit Save to apply the changes.

It’s really simple. You don’t need to open and edit them one by one. Here you have them all available to apply changes to them quickly.
