Tax Rate Upload
[resolved] Priority Populating as Null (9 posts)

    Not sure if this is a known issue or just on my end.
    Using a Woo theme with no other woocommerce plugins.
    My .CSV loads perfectly and all other functions work. However the "Priority" field is set to "0" for all entries. The cart works but no other entries can be added and the standard tax page times out after a few minutes.

    This is mentioned in the FAQ this is not an issue with my plugin but an issue with woocommerce not using pagination and it trys to load all of your rates on the same page being the standard tax page.

    It will eventually time out etc. Again this has nothing to do with my plugin, if you manually entered hundreds or thousands of rates it would end up doing the same thing. Also you can still add new rows it works just fine you just have to wait for the script to finish loading all of the rates on that standard page. NOTE: if you click Insert Row it will insert a new row where ever your mouse was last. So if you possibly clicked on a row at the top and then scrolled down the page to get to the Insert Row it would insert it at the top of the page but it won't jump the page to where it inserted. So always make sure you click on the last row before clicking the insert row button.

    What would you like the priority set to? By default I have it set them all to 0... not sure why you would want it anything else. Your importing hundreds if not thoasands of zip codes so why would the priority be in any other order or why would one have priority over the other it would be irrelevant.

    If you would like some kind of feature added for this then let me know. I guess I just don't understand what you are expecting or want the priority to be.

    Ironically I worked on adding adding taxes tonight and checked here earlier to see if you had a chance to respond yet. Thanks.

    So what I ended up doing was just creating a new .csv manually from the taxrates.com and uploading it. For Oklahoma there are 764 entries and sure enough it slows down the page to a crawl without your plugin activated.

    What was a major time saver was using your plugin to remove all entries so I could re-upload an edited .csv through woocommerce. Major thanks there to you.

    I hunted through your code but I couldn't figure out where you addressed priority. I figured you left it blank and it just defaulted to 0.

    Here's what I encountered. If priority is set to 0, you can not add another line with a 0 priority. It has to be 1 and up. Woo won't let you. All of the priority 0 entries are highlighted in red as an error. They cannot be adjusted either.
    So any additional line you wish to add (say for instance for a pay locally option which calls the home state line) is forced to have a priority of one by woocommerce restraints.

    Anyhow, it just occured to me that I could add my additions into the taxrate.com .csv in excel before using your plugin to upload. That would work as well and take less time than I spent today making a new excel template.

    Hey thanks for your plugin.

    Ok I see what you are saying. I think that is a limitation of woocommerce and not sure what I could do about that. If you have any suggestions let me know.

    how can I add the priority field addition to the taxrates.com csv because your plugin leaves the priority field on zero even when it is selected as Yes during upload. please advise how this can be accomplished before uploading the excel file using your plugin?

    I just recently updated the plugin so you can change all the priority's to 1 from the plugin. Here is the thread where someone else wanted this option.

    Is this what you need? If so update the plugin and then you should have that option available in the plugin settings.

    Thank you for your quick reply. I have downloaded your plugin today and when I select the priority and Change tax name option the fields are not populated in woocommerce. Please advise.

    Can you attach a screenshot. They both need to be done individually as they both have there own button to save the settings...
