Click on Publish Digital Catalogs to begin.

Items that have been successfully tagged via OCR will be highlighted
2. Manually tag any remaining items or add any additional URL links as desired.
This can be done with Rectangle Mode found at the top of the screen:
Simply highlight the area of any missing item or promotional image you wish to tag:
3. Click SAVE in the top right corner to publish the digital catalog!
Editing a Catalog after it's been Hotspotted
In cases where you've previously hotspotted a catalog, or saved your progress to continue at a later date, MarketTime offers the ability to continue working on the catalog.
To do this, navigate to the Documents tab within the desired Manufacturer and toggle the view to List View:
Here you will see an Edit icon next to the catalogs you can continue work on:
Use the Edit Digital Catalog button in the resulting window to continue your work.
When finished editing the catalog, click the Save button in the top right corner as you normally would.
NOTE: This process results in a new file being uploaded with your updates, so be sure to remove the original file with the Trashcan icon. The Date Added field will help you determine which file is the most recent.
