Easier way to move order of items

As I add more and more products to my store, it’s becoming increasingly frustrating to rearrange items by dragging them into the position/order I want them shown.  My products are often showcased on the front page by seasonal holidays.  Mother’s Day just finished so I wanted to move those cards to the last page so I can make room for Father’s Day.  This will be a continuous process throughout the year as I “merchandize” my shop.  I can’t fathom how tedious this is going to be once I have my store filled with the 200+ items I have to add.  Please can you work on an easier way to do this?  Thank you so much for your consideration.

Re: Easier way to move order of items

Hi Lisa

Thanks for getting in touch with us, and sorry for our delay in replying! I'm not actually sure if this feature you're describing is on our roadmap for future updates, but I can look into it for you.

Have you thought about how you would like to be able to move your products? Would it be easier to have an option to move items by category? Or do you imagine using a check box to bring up items to the "front"? We're interested in knowing what you think :)

Take care,

Jessica

Thanks for getting back to me

Thanks for getting back to me Jessica.  

It would be easier to move items individually.  Currently on Artfire, items are numbered in one of their tools and you can move them by number - i.e. number 1 can easily be moved to item # 210 just by changing the number.  It's not perfect, but it works and allows me to put my items in any order I want at the push of a button (number).  I have not yet moved all my items from Artfire to my IM site, but I do have 257 currently to move.  As I mentioned, I like my front page to be relevant based on time of year and holidays/themes.  Dragging one photograph from the very top of the list, once that particular holiday is over and no longer needs to be "front and center", to the very bottom is so time consuming, and I only have 30 items listed on IM so far! Any help would be soooo appreciated. 

here's a link to a screen shot to give you an idea.  https://goo.gl/photos/rrPNwaHRjWioh9oA7

Thanks for sharing that screenshot Lisa! I think this is a great idea, and I've been passing it around the office. If you need any help migrating your content from Artfire to IndieMade, please let us know :) You can write us at support@indiemade.com.

Take care,

Would love an easier merchandizer, too

Am glad Lisa brought this up!  I only have 30+ iems in my Indiemade store so far, but can see down the road where the current way to rearrange items will become burdensome, having to drag items from place to place.  I, too have seasonal items, mainly Christmas, and would love an easier eay to rearrange or just "freshen" up the pages.  Thanks!

Thanks for chiming in Catherine. Your feedback is appreciated too :)

Any movement on this subject?

Hi Jessica - It's been a few months since this was last addressed and I was wondering if there was any chance that a feature like this may be in the works?

Thanks

Lisa
