Why doesn't Zapier's Shopify product creation include key data

While making a new product in Shopify from a zap it appears you’re unable to modify key data points, such as barcode, variant inventory, or weight. These are all essential items, and they show up in the test results.



This feels fairly basic, but isn’t included in the “Find Product” or “update product”. update allows for adding SKU and price but not these items. If you’re shipping and weight is created as 0 that’s a big deal. quantity is essential for the obvious reasons. Barcodes are essential for any shop with a retail location. 


currently trying to work around this, but I’m beyond frustrated this doesn’t exist. Make has this included in their connections, and as someone considering moving from Make to Zapier this is pretty disqualifying. (screen cap of that included).
