How MSI Add-On works

With add-on installed, Magento 2 multi-source inventory entities become available for import and export using Improved Import and Export extension functionality.
Improved import and export procedures work the following way:
- The user creates an import or export job and schedules it or runs manually
- The user selects the entity that should be imported or exported from Magento 2, either stock source (warehouse) or stock quantity
- The user selects the import process behavior: add and update, replace, delete
- The user selects the source of the imported file: file upload, url, FTP, SFTP, Dropbox, Google Sheet
- The user applies attribute mapping if warehouse or stock attribute names differ from Magento 2 requirements
- The user executes the import or export procedure
Moreover, using Improved Import and Export extension functionality one can synchronize Magento 2 warehouses and product quantity per warehouse with any management software like CRM or ERP systems.

If you are using Magento 2.3 with free MSI extension, you probably have to manage multiple stock sources and update product quantity per stock regularly. Using MSI Add-on, you can automate this process and save some management time.
- Import and export procedures can be scheduled using cron-scheduler. With cron-scheduler you can select any required period the export and import processes should be executed automatically.
- Using Google Sheets, you can work with your team on a single table updating stock and warehouse information. When the table is ready, you can paste a link to the import job and import any changes directly to your Magento 2. Such jobs can be further enhanced with a schedule.
- If you are using any management software that uses XML, Json, XLSX or ODS files to store information you can import such files directly to your Magento 2 store. Improved Import and Export extension supports all file formats and allows for separator value mapping. Furthermore, if you use different naming for warehouse or stock attributes the extension will let you map your custom values with Magento 2 default naming.
Improved Import and Export extension is a fully-featured management tool with a robust feature list and available options. The use cases are pretty much unlimited, and you decide how to want to build your processes.
