improved import and export - Magento 2 extension

The following blog post will help you retrace the evolution of the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 module. The article gathers updates associated with the extension’s each new version from the very beginning. At the time of 1.0.0, it was a basic import solution with an existing import jobs architecture and import cron automation. With the next few versions, the module got such enhancements as product attribute import on the fly, transfers from FTP, SFTP, URL, and Dropbox, custom mapping, etc. Each new release made the Improved Import stronger and stronger. However, it was still an import-only tool until 1.5.0 was released. With this version, our extension became capable of both import and export processes. You can peruse the detailed evolution of the module and see its latest features below.

3.8.1 (released 7.11.2022)

Features

  • Full compatibility with Magento 2.4.5
  • Added possibility to assign customer group to customers using the customer group name with “Customers Main” entity. The following fields have been added to the “Customers Main” export and import: _customer_group_code (name of the customer group), _tax_class_name (name of the tax assigned to the customer group), _tax_class_id (ID of the tax assigned to the customer group). The customer group can only be created if the tax class specified already exists at the store.
  • Added ability to use auto-increment for order increment_id. Meaning that if you do not have an increment_id – it will be generated and assigned automatically. Useful when importing orders from your CRM or ERP, or integrating with a marketplace.
  • Added feature “Update Products that are not in the import list” for product import. Which allows to set products inside your catalog, which are missing from the imported file as: out of stock, quantity=0, out of stock with quantity=0, disabled.
  • Added system events for import and export jobs which can be used as hooks during the integration.
