Colorway: Bulk add colors to Products and Components - Released: 11/4/2021

You can now bulk add color swatches to products and components in just a few clicks! 

Key Benefits

  • Create your products and components faster - you can select multiple color swatches at once
  • Decrease the number of clicks when you're adding color swatches - you no longer need to save every time you add a color swatch
  • Prevent duplication of swatches in your palettes -  you now have a universal search available when adding color swatches

What's changing? 

  • The Add Swatch button will no longer require you to opt between an "Enter Manually" option and a "Find Existing" option at the outset.
  • Clicking this button opens a modal directing you to a universal search, in case the swatch you need already exists.  
  • If you find no matches for your query, you can simply click the Create Swatch button to open the new swatch modal.  
    • Your search term will pre-populate the new swatch modal to make creation quick and easy.
  • You can now select multiple color swatches at once:
