Enhanced Admin Grid allows you to completely customize your Magento 1 admin panel, improving usability by adding several usability features. Product search allows you to search for products in the Magento admin just like a customer would! Multiple row highlighting & selection allows you to select several rows by pressing control and then clicking on the rows.This allows you to perform mass actions, and saves you a ton of time in the admin - so you can focus on your business. Thumbnails in the catalog view show you product thumbnail images to make finding the right products faster, and easier.

Persistent catalog view settings means that you don't need to continually reconfigure the same configuration settings. After selecting multiple products you can quickly export all selected products to .csv. There are too many features to list! If you spend a lot of time in your Magento admin panel, this is a must have extension.



Full Product Search: Search for products just like a customer would and display the results in the products grid. This is extremely handy when helping a customer find a product. To clear a search filter, click on "Reset Filter".
Grid Row Highlighter:
Highlight a bunch of rows by dragging your cursor over the rows while holding CTRL. Each highlighted row will be checked off. This will apply to all grids (including the catalog grid).
Catalog Grid Thumbnails/Images:
Shows product thumbnail images in the catalog product grid in a very organized and maintainable manor.
Persistent Catalog Grid Settings:
Set the default page size, default sort, default columns to show, etc. The settings will be stored in your Store Config so you can save some time.
Mass Product Refresh: Loads and saves a bunch of products. This was built to aid in addressing a data inconsistency issue
Quick Export;
Select the export to CSV action from the mass action drop down and it'll create a CSV with all the selected products and send it as a file to your browser.
Custom Catalog Product Grid Columns:
Lets you select which columns you want to see in the catalog product grid. For example, short description, long description, custom attributes, etc. You will also be able to change and quickly view product images thumbnails here.
Product Image Thumbnail Column: You will be able to view product image thumbnails in a neat column in the catalog grid.
Date Created Column: Choose to show the "date created" value for a product

Installation Instructions

This module should be fully plug and play. If you're using a custom back-end package/skin, which you're probably not, you should transfer over the layout tbt_enhancedgrid.xml and tbt/enhancedgrid templates folder to your own back-end package/skin. Make sure you clear your cache. Logging in and logging back out may also be required.

When the module is enabled you will see an asterisk "*" beside the Catalog -> Manage Products menu option in the back-end.    

Error in config after install for Magento 1.5: If you are still seeing the error "Fatal error: Call to a member function setEntityTypeFilter()" please  go to the releases tab and click on the latest version and use that extension key.

To uninstall/disable: To turn off Enhanced Product Grid modify the app/etc/modules/TBT_Enhancedgrid.xml file and set the 'active' value to 'false'. (note: Turning off module output is not the same thing and it will does not disable the module, rather it just disables output so you're left with a blank product management screen )


Documentation, and all our source code, is available on Github; feel free to contribute! You can also install with modman or composer thanks to some great community members. View Enhanced Admin Product Grid on Github for more information.
