How to attach/change products variation in the WooCommerce variation bulk edit plugin?

Attaching a new product variation to some products in WooCommerce without using a powerful plugin is a time-consuming and boring process. Because you need to open the product pages one by one and add the variable to them. 

In this tutorial, you can find how the WooCommerce variations bulk edit plugin simplifies attaching variations to the products for store managers.

Attach specific attribute to the individual products

In this example, we want to add Red as a new variation to the products which have already Blue in their variations.

To reach this goal, following the three simple steps is needed:

  • Filter products with Blue variation.
  • Mark one of them in the product table.
  • Attach Red to the variation by Variations bulk edit form.

Now, let’s take a closer look at each step.

Filter products with specific variation 

The first step is to open the Filter form by pressing the filter icon on the toolbar.

Click filter products icon

In the Filter form, open the Categories/Tags/Taxonomies tab to filter products with blue variation by choosing Blue from the drop-down list in front of the Product Color field.

Now by pressing Get Products, you can see all products with blue variation in the table.

Mark one product and open the variations bulk edit form

To attach variation in the WooCommerce variations bulk edit plugin, you have to choose one product from the table, then click on the Manage Variations option on the toolbar.

Note: if you mark more than one product in the table, the Attaching tab is not available in the Variations Bulk Edit form. Therefore it’s available just for single product.

After choosing the Manage Variations option, you have access to the Attaching tab of the Variations Bulk Edit form. By referring to this tab, you can follow the below steps to attach variation to your product:

  • Wait for the plugin to load the terms related to this attribute. 
  • Choose the term you want to attach to your product from the list – Red in this example. 
  • Wait for the plugin to display all possible variations of this attribute.
  • Mark one or more variations to attach to the product- Large | Red, Medium | Red in this example.
  • Click on the Attach button.
