The ConnectWise Manage product export allows you to send products from your Adaptive Catalog workspace to the ConnectWise Manage product catalog. Once you have established the link to the ConnectWise Manage product catalog, updates to the pricing and availability will be synchronized to ConnectWise Manage.
You can also use the linked products when pushing the products to ConnectWise Manage Opportunities. Instead of pushing as forecast items, they will be pushed as links to the product in your Manage Opportunity.
If you set up the ConnectWise Manage Pod extension, you will be able to see the full Adaptive Catalog product details when viewing the product in ConnectWise Manage.
