Farms who supplement their own products with offerings from other producers now have the ability to manage that data on the Producers page, which can be found in alphabetical order in the admin sidebar.
When you land on this page, you'll notice that any producers whose names you have previously entered on the Delivery Builder or Product Management pages have already been stored here. You may edit any field on an existing producer, and create new ones as needed. We recommend keeping your producer information up to date for your own reporting purposes, as well as to provide a more transparent and personal experience for your members when customizing their share.
Producer names are visible to members on the Customize and Shop pages:
In the member grocery shopping feature (beta), their names and locations are visible on the catalog pages, and the name, location, and description appear in the product details view:
Creating a new Producer
To add a new producer for your farm, click the "New Producer" button in the top-left corner of the page.
This will open a modal where you can enter their information. Name, City or Locality, and the two-character abbreviation for the State or Province are required. The Description is optional, but recommended, and is limited to 5000 characters.
When you are done editing this producer, click "Save". Your producer will now appear in the table, and will be available in the dropdown on the Delivery Builder and Product Management pages. Click "Cancel" at any time to exit this step without saving.
Editing an existing Producer
Producer data is fully editable at any time. The Name and Description fields are edited directly in the table. Simply click in the field you wish to edit, enter your changes, and click away or press the "Enter" key to save. A confirmation message will appear at the top of the page.
When editing the location information, a modal will appear to enable you to edit both fields together. Enter your changes and click "Save." Again, a confirmation message will appear.
Setting the Producer name on your Products
In both the Product Management page and the new Delivery Builder, the Producer text field has been replaced with a dropdown menu. Click to expand the list, then click to select the appropriate option. Your change will be saved automatically.
Similarly, the modal to create a new product now displays a dropdown to select its producer.
