  • Add new. Creates a new item in the current context.
  • Export. Downloads a CSV file of all the items.
  • Import. Sends you to the CSV Import option page, from where you can import your CSV files.
  • Refresh List. Reloads the list of items to display the latest changes.
  • Show SQL Query. Provides the SQL query to reproduce your search or filter in your own SQL manager.
  • Export to SQL Manager. Opens PrestaShop's SQL Manager tool (in the "Advanced Parameters") menu, from which you can query PrestaShop's database with SQL statements ("SELECT ... FROM ... WHERE ...").
    If your list of items was filtered (by name, for instance), then the default SQL statement will take this into account (for instance, "WHERE 1  AND b.`name` LIKE '%blouse%'" for product list).
