Attribute Quick Add


OnTap Attribute Quick Add

Attribute Quick Add extension enables administrators to quickly and efficiently manage attribute option values in bulk via the Magento admin panel.

Video Guide


  • Quickly add option values to drop-down and multi-select attributes
  • Automatically de-duplicates options
  • Bulk change values
  • Extract option values and edit locally
  • Sort options into alphabetical order

Normally, attribute options have to be created manually one-by-one. Attribute Quick Add lets you create these en-masse by importing a list, in a process that is as easy as a copy-and-paste.

Installation Guide

Attribute Quick Add can be obtained from:

Both Composer and ZIP archive installations are supported.

Make a backup!

Direct installation of Magento extensions onto your production web site is not recommended or supported. We advise you to install this on a development version of your web site first to ensure correct operation with your particular Magento installation.

In addition, we advise you to make a complete backup of your Magento system (application files and database) before proceeding.

General Usage

The Attribute Quick Add extension functionality can be found in the Stores → Attributes → Product section of your Magento admin panel.

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

If you edit or create any attribute which is either a Dropdown or a Multiple Select, then you will see the Quick Add functionality displayed, as shown below in the Manage Options tab:

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

The functionality consists of the following elements:

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

Quick Add Text Field

In this text field, you should add each of the attribute options you wish to add to the current attribute. Each option should appear on a separate row of the field. You can either type the values into the field directly, or you can copy-and-paste into this field from another application.

Please note that each attribute option has at least two values, and potentially more if you have multiple store views defined. These represent the text label for the option to display in the admin panel, and each of the store views. For instance, please check the image below:

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

In order to import the above into Magento, the main Quick Add text field would need to be populated as follows:

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

The comma character acts as the delimiter for the values.

You can add as many delimited values per row as you have store views defined, for instance:

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

Sort Attributes

Clicking the Sort Attributes button will take the current list of already added attribute options below the quick add workspace and sort them in ascending alphabetical order - according to the 'Admin' column value.

As an example, if the button was pressed after adding the options shown above, then the options would be sorted and re-ordered as follows:

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

Delimiter Text Field

Sometimes the comma character is not ideal as a delimiter for your values. In this case, you can change this to any other character you need.

Trim Whitespace Checkbox

When this is ticked, any empty rows in your text field will not result in blank option values being created when Quick Add button is clicked.

Quick Add

When the Quick Add button is clicked, the values from the text field above are processed and automatically added to the options below. This is the big time saver that Attribute Quick Add provides - you don't have to enter them all manually one-by-one.

So, for example, if you were creating colour options, then your text field might be populated like this:

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

After clicking the 'Quick Add' button, this would change:

OnTap Attribute Quick Add)

Notice how the 7 new attribute options have been created according to the values in the text field above.

If the text field contains values that already exist in the 'Admin' column, then those rows won't be imported in order to prevent duplicates being created accidentally.
