We proposed a manager system which would call items by category into their respective pages while also allowing them to access a back-side manager to quickly enable/disable products or entire categories.
The MVP required individual product entries. Since the bulk of the items would be a single entry instance, we did not propose any bulk-upload / import features at the onset. However, the bulk actions needed to be AFTER the initial data was input.
Once this project was proposed, the client figured they could hand this off to some of their other office staff to manage. We worked to make the implementation & facilitation of content management in the system as easy as possible. We implemented CK Editor to allow the content manager to copy/paste content in place and we secured other content by limiting the content manager with appropriate DNN Security Roles. Now the content managers can add, edit, & delete items from the catalog with no danger of breaking other elements on the page.
