A Product Channel Template is a dataset of mapped attributes so they correspond with the requisite fields of a 3rd party (distributor, supplier, vendor, etc).
By uploading a CSV of Product Attributes from the 3rd party within their specified Channel, the process allows the translation/mapping of product data from internal system attributes to match the vendor's preferred attribute names when importing or exporting Product Data.
Channel specific attributes can be viewed in the Product Details page and product specific data can be edited within the Edit Product Details page. Changes to Channel Template attributes can be edited within the Channel Template, unless a Product Set has been uploaded with that Template, which locks editing for that Template.
