Product xlsx template import : beeing able to specify tag records

On transparent Supply, beeing able to specif the tags to import ( ‘category’ for instance) when using Product data load through the XLSX file import.

What is your industry? Fabrication & Assembly
How will this idea be used?

This idea is to give better flexibility to the XLSX file integration and reduce the amount of work needed to integrate data in TS. Currently the XLSX can be integrated but an additionnal step is needed to add the tags section.

Tags, like 'category', are then used when doing searches with the search APIs.
