2. Configure your Nextag feed
2.1 Split up your products
Before starting to change your attributes, first you need to filter your products so that you don’t send to Nextag:
- The products that you do not wish to send to Nextag.
- "Parent products", if your source feed contains any
2.2 Match the fields
To match the fields, go to the "Feed management" page > "Field matching" tab:
You will find a definition of each of the fields on the right. The definition of these fields gives you the values expected by Nextag.
If you want to launch a Bing PLA campaign from Nextag, you have to send your products URLs in the field "url_bing".
To meet Nextag expectations, it is important to follow theses steps to fill in the field "url_bing":
Step 1 : Create a virtual field. Call it “Nextag_url_bing” within the “Feed Management” part > “Source feed” tab.
Step 2 : Match the virtual field with the field “url_bing” in “Feed Management”, then “Field matching” tab. Save by clicking on “Save Modifications" at the bottom of the page.
Step 3 : Make one automatic rules to fill in the virtual field with your field "Product_URL".
To comply with the automatic rule conditions, choose all your products
Then select the virtual field “Nextag_url_bing” and call dynamically your field "Product URL"
Here is an example:
2.3 Creating mapping of categories
Use the "Nextag" taxonomy to match your categories with those of the distributor. To do this mapping, click on the “Product Management” tab:
- Open the "Nextag" taxonomy
- Search for your category in the thesaurus (use “Ctrl + F” to search for your desired key word)
- Click on the corresponding line
- Click on “SAVE”
Remember to click on “SAVE” once the operation is complete.
2.4 Options Tab
In the “Options” tab of your "Nextag" feed, verify the different items and modify those needed. For more details about this tab, consult our "Options Tab" tutorial.
