How to export redirects

You can export your suggestions terms to a CSV file to help with several tasks:

  • Creating a backup of your redirects.
  • Moving your existing redirects to a new Shopify store with Products Filter & Search installed.
  • Editing your redirects in bulk using a spreadsheet.

Any changes that you make to the redirects in your CSV file appear in your Redirects if you import your CSV file into the Boost Product Filter & Search admin.

Note: The easiest way to edit a redirect is to use the Redirects add/edit in your Boost Product Filter & Search admin.

Export your redirects

From your Boost Product Filter & Search admin, go to Search menu > Redirects
Note: If you want to export only some of your products, then you can filter your suggestion list to view and select specific products for export.
Click Export

Use a text editor to edit your redirects CSV file

If you don't have a spreadsheet program, then you can edit CSV files using a text editor.

Caution: You should only use a text editor as a last resort. For example, use a text editor if there are formatting errors in your CSV file and you cannot open it in a spreadsheet program.

Most computers have text editors that can open CSV files. You can also use a program like Atom or Sublime Text to edit and debug your CSV file.

A CSV file with UTF-8 encoding is the only file format that can be used to import to or export from Shopify.

To format your CSV file in a text editor:

  • Column headers must be separated by commas (for example, First Name,Last Name,Email,Company,Address1).
  • The list of tags must be wrapped in quotation marks (for example, "tag1,tag2,tag3").
  • Different records must be separated by line breaks.
