How to use quick search in the Woocommerce bulk product editing plugin?

Quick search is an effective way to filter the products you need to bulk edit their features by “ID” or “Title”.

You can see “Quick search” in the main page of our plugin above the product table, to let store managers quickly find their preferred products.

Quick Search has been designed in the main page in Woocommerce bulk edit plugin

There are some options in this section which make it easier for you to filter the products including:

Product number

The first box is a dropdown list. It let you choose how many products display in each page. 

You can select the number of products to be displayed in each page among the default options in this list of “Quick Search” including:

  • 10
  • 25
  • 50
  • 75
  • 100
Product number choose how many products to be displayed in each page

In the second box you can type a name or number and set other boxes to filter products according to it.

In the third box, you can choose the field you want to filter the products according to it. 

As this is a quick search, you are able to filter the products just according to their “ID” or “Title”.

If you need more options to filter the products, you can use the “Filter Form” in the plugin.
