We hope this documentation is thorough enough to give you a clear understanding of Product Mass Updater. The best approach in learning the new elements and the logic of the module is to dive in the module and test it, when in doubt read certain sections of the Documentation and go back into testing/trying it out. After a shot amount of time the module will become very easy to use and you will understand the entire logic of designing it the way it is now.
