Adding Items to Inventory

In Research, you can add topics to your inventory by:

  1. Clicking on the gray + beside a topic, keyword, or question.
  2. Clicking on at least one check box beside a topic, keyword, or question and then clicking “Add to inventory.”

At the same time the topics are added to inventory, they’re added to a plan that uses today’s date as its name. That way you can keep track of your additions.

In Inventory and Projects, you can add topics and/or pages to your inventory by clicking “Add to inventory.” Here you can add an individual topic or add more rows for additional topics. You can also upload a CSV file if you have many topics.

Uploading Multiple Items Using a CSV File

The CSV file needs to follow a specific format. You can get the template from the down from the dialog box that appears when clicking “Upload CSV.”

Example template CSV file

Follow the example above to create your own spreadsheet containing all the items you wish to import into MarketMuse. Make sure to save it as a CSV file so it may be imported into the platform.

Note that headers must be in ALL CAPS and there is a maximum of 500 rows per CSV file. More than that and you’ll need to use another file.

Metrics associated with these newly uploaded topics are not updated instantaneously and require some time to calculate. The time required is based on the number of items uploaded and the size of your inventory.

How to Find Topics in a Plan

If you associate topics with plans in your CSV file, you’ll be able to find them by:

  1. Going to plans.
  2. Hovering over your chosen plan.
  3. Clicking on the arrow to bring you to a Saved View showing only those topics.
Plans to topics 1
Plans to topics 2

A system-generated saved view is created so that you can see all the topics associated with the plan.

Plans to topics 3a
Plans to topics 3

Make a copy of the filter if you want to modify it. This will also make it available in your list of Saved Views (system-generated views don’t appear here).
