How to find your Candid created products

Products that you have made in Candid will show up with our logo next to them in your product manager page. This is to help differentiate them from other products if you happen to also have an ecommerce store integration. You can use the Search & Filter tool to quickly find all of these products:

Need a new product just for one particular order?

This is a great option for samples or special items for a particular customer. For this option you will use the order form itself to create the unique product.

First find the order you want to add the product to. Then while in View Catalog mode click the dotted menu near the right corner of the screen to find Add Custom Product:

You will then create the new product the same way as we outlined in the steps at the beginning of this tutorial. The difference is the product only exists on that particular order unless you choose to publish it to your catalog as well.

If you want to publish the custom product you can do so on your Products page as seen in the example below:
