In Magento Default, it is quite time-consuming for admins to edit the information on the Product Page because of the illogical classification in the product column tab. Besides, there is no way for store admins to make adjustments in product details at the grid except for modifying them one by one separately.
Therefore, the Mageplaza Product Grid extension was built to optimize admins’ tasks as well as save time and effort to manage products at the backend. It allows admins to expand the product grid with numerous columns and handy options. Moreover, they can edit the information on the Manage Product page with ease.
