This feature in the Management Console will allow the ability to auto-generate SKUs or barcodes for all products that are missing them. This is important if a client is planning on using the Product Template Sheet, as SKUs and barcodes are needed for the import to be successful.
Log in to your Management Console.
Click the Product tab.
Click Extras (located near the bottom on the column).
Select "Products", "Modifiers" or "Ingredients" to sub-selection to select if you want to generate a SKU or barcode for the products.
Click Generate. Once completed, a confirmation page will appear of all the changes displays with the products, modifiers, or ingredients that were updated.
The barcodes generated through this method are only UPC_A compliant.
