Transition from old label to the new 2021 label

It is important to always set the old label to “none” when applying the new label.

Per product

We open the product edit page and go to the “EU Energy Label” tab, here we set the old label to “None”.

Here we select 3 products that have the same label and we want to change into the new label. Select the products, choose ‘Edit‘ from the dropdown and click on apply.
