Automatically Generate SKU
I'd love it if we had the option to automatically generate a SKU for a new item based on the most recently used SKU including any text prefix. Or, in the SKU section of General Product Data maybe list the most recent SKU so we can add the new sequentially.
It’s likely we’ll revisit this with future product screen UI changes to make this automatic. For now we recommend using the free solution here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-product-sku-generator/
This is critical - I need the SKU to be generated from the Variables alone. And to create them all manually when there are ten thousand combinations is unnecessary. Please help woo! Can't get this combo of SKU's to work with one colour varying the price. (Also using SKU generator - as I thought this would help)
yes that would be great for it to generate the sku# by alphanumeric. The suggestion would allow us to mask it so it becomes specific to our shops.
this is possible with sequential orders pro where we can add prefixes / suffixes with a number in the middle.
that will be great!!!

Having the ability to add on to the parent sku based upon the option selected. E.g. Take a standard T-shirt that has color and size options. The T-shirt product sku is T123, the colors red, green, blue would add a suffix of -R -G or -B. The size options are small, medium, and large. The suffix added would be -S, -M, or -L. If the selection for a green t-shirt in a medium size were selected, it would produce a sku of T123-G-L. With this concept, all possible combinations of the product would not have to be generated.
The limit on the current option setup is to give the option selected a different name. With Composite Products add-in, this is not possible as of now.
Hi there, we don't have one that uses numbers, but did just release one from SkyVerge that uses the product slug: http://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-product-sku-generator/
If you don't have inventory set up elsewhere already, then it may work for you.
yes this would be awesome

It would be great to add this feature. Drupal Commerce has a plugin for this and it works awesome for new inventories.
Well, when will be a function of auto sku?
I would like to add my vote. I used a cart from a developer in Germany that had this function and it was great!! Kevin
That would be awesome. Specially for those clients that don't have their own inventory when they start to sell online.
