We recommend that you update the Product_Edited_Date time stamp variable if any of the variables with a single asterisk (*) change. This alerts your data sharing partners that a recent change has been made and they will likely wish to refresh the specific data.

If any of the variables with a double asterisk (**) change, we recommend updating the time stamp SKU_Edited_Date. This alerts your data sharing partners that a recent change has been made and they likely wish to refresh this data.
