With this option selected the Product Price, Name, Description, Image and Category fieldsin Mamut will remain unchanged, even if they are changed on the website. And vice versa - with thisoption unselected this product data remains unchanged on the website, even if its changed in Mamut. Note, that stock levels are always taken from Mamut. It makes sense to disable stocksubtraction feature on the website.
  • 18. Site Options Web DataLink for Mamut Enterprise E5 (E4, E3) needs to be configured only once. Itstores configuration settings in the MS Windows registry of the local PC. 1. For successful work Web DataLink for Mamut requires access to your website. Go to Site Options window: right mouse click on the icon in system tray and select Options item. 2.

  • 19. The image above demonstrates test data in the fields. Actually, the fields are pre-filled withthe default links and settings already, so you only need to press the Test Connection button to makesure the local PC actually can connect to the Magento installation. Due to the license restrictions only FTP username and password can be changed, but notthe URL and host. (Please note that all standard installations of the program are hardcoded with your FTPdetails to ensure that if you connect every time. If you have requested that we leave your usernameand password fields so that you can change these as you update your FTP login details, please makesure that if you change your FTP you also change options in Web DataLink for Mamut.)
  • 20. 3. Orders from option allows for a specific order ID on the site. If you dont want to synchronize all online orders, you can set the Order ID in the Orders from field, so only orders with greater IDs will be synchronized.Example: a) Open Administrative Panel of the Magento web-store. You can use the Go to site (admin) link for quick access to site. Note: The Go to site link drives to the web-store front end (user part), while the Go to site (admin) link – to the web-store back end (admin part). b) Search for the Orders on site. c) In the Orders list, choose a record. d) Find a Order # and copy it. For example, the order # is 100000001. a) Then, go to Web DataLink for Mamut > Site Options window.

To synchronize your data only once a week you should choose any one day. If you want to do this every day, you should select all days of week. To disable automatic Synchronization, simply unselect all days options. 2. Then, you set up time of the day for Web DataLink to run on. If you want Web DataLink to run once a day, you can select the Every day option, and then set the time, for example 9:00:00 PM.
  • 24. 3. Also, you can synchronize your data several times during the day. To set that, you should select the Ongoing between option, and then set a time range, for example, 8:00:00 AM and 5:00:00 PM, and then set up an interval, for example, every 10 minute(s). So, with such settings Web DataLink will run every 10 minutes between 8:00:00 PM and 5:00:00 AM on the days specified.4. The the Run on Windows startup option here. If this option is selected, Web DataLink will run on Windows startup. Please note that it doesn’t mean the Synchronization process will start immediately when you switch your PC on.
