Quick Adds

Quick Adds in Loaded 7 are options to add an item to another area of the Admin without navigating through the necessary menus to get there. Those categories that you can ‘quick add’ something to are:


  • Customers
  • Categories
  • Products
  • Specials
  • Manufacturers
  • Banners
  • Newsletters

By selecting Quick Adds and then the category you wish to add to, you can bypass a number of steps to get to that add screen. When you are done adding that item, you will now be in the category you added to. To get out, select an item from the Quick Select Navigation Bar.

We will show you how to Quick Adds to all of these areas right here.

For all of the above items, Select Quick Add from wherever you are in the Admin and choose which type of Quick Adds you are making from the list that opens up. Image 1 shows you this list open and ready for selection:
