The upload CSV function allows you to create a bunch of products in one go, but you still have to create the pages afterwards. Can't it do both steps in one go?

We have an updated version of the CSV upload which does indeed create the pages at the same time. It's in the final stages of our Quality Assurance process, which means it's been deployed to a 'dev' server for one last round of checks before it's put out into the world.
As you can imagine, it's a powerful tool - the ability to potentially create hundreds of products and pages at a stroke! With great power comes great responsibility, so we're checking this one very carefully ;-)
It should be available soon.

To clarify on Jamie's post, the functionality to create product pages when using the product upload already exists, but requires some set up on a site-level for it to work. This is mainly with setting a config for the shop parent page(s). In the case of the Union website, it was built before we developed the Skeleton theme, so there is also some work that needs to be done when mapping the products to the product page and creating the data based on that. The site on the dev server is specific to the Union Music Store website. In time as we work on the Skeleton it will be easier to get the automatic page creation working straight out of the box, but a more experienced developer will be able to catch the 'event' that is fired as the page is created and do with it what they wish.
