Once you have made all the changes that you would like within the item you can click on the Add button at the bottom of the page or the top right of the page.

If you would like to add items in bulk, you can refer to the Bulk Import article which allows you to use a prebuilt template we offer or you can use your own Excel file and import multiple items at one time.
