No product display Name (Title) in the .../admin/commerce/products View

This question refers to commerce_kickstart-7.x-2.6 on Drupal 7.22, but may just be a problem with a View and not Commerce Kickstart specific.

The View at .../admin/commerce/products is not working for my product display.

I have uploaded products (product variations) and product displays using Commerce Feeds.
My products are 'Hair Product' and my displays are 'Hair Product Display'.

Products are showing up at
and I can put products into the shopping cart, etc. so the front end seems to be working fine.

However, when I go to
all I get under 'Title' is the Producer taxonomy field and the Category taxonomy field, when I would expect to also see the node title (the name of the product).
The test products (which came with Kickstart) are showing up fine: The product name (Title) appears under 'Title' and is clickable.

1) There is something about the 'Product Display' that came with Kickstart which I have failed to include in my 'Hair Product Display' ?
2) The View that generates .../admin/commerce/products is filtering out my 'Hair Product Display' node titles ?

The View which generates .../admin/commerce/products is called Commerce Backoffice: Products (Content)

I've searched much for the answer, but no success.

I'm playing with Views to try to solve the problem but, as a Views novice, with little success.

Any help, advice or ideas of where to look, much appreciated.

[Thank you to Dotline for the comment and 'answer' so far.]

This may be relevant, it's certainly another issue:

When I go to
each variation has a Title.

However, when I click edit, the Title field on the edit page is empty!
Investigation continues...

My solution does not answer my questions, but it does solve the need for a sortable admin display of products to allow for editing:
1) Activate the Dashboard module (which would appear to be a Commerce module as the Drupal Dashboard project is version 6 only)
2) Create a View of Product Displays -- specifically a Block
3) Add the Block to the Dashboard
Job done :)

Have the same problem,

Drupal commerce is a great module in one language, but I think a lot of people are getting frustrated by Multilanguage Failure. And give it up. Everything is working fine, but the fine-tuning, in views, taxonomy, e.o. is always a problem. There are a lot of questions for multilingual Drupal commerce, and no answers. I would like to see a Drupal commerce site that is fully multilingual.

If it’s possible to build a fully multilingual Drupal commerce site, I think it’s a good idea to do a Commerce Module Tuesday video. For the moment I don’t think it’s possible.

Taxonomy translation terms in search, view filters not working

Title problem with feeds, maybe the answers is this

If you open the product display, open the product varriation, save, put the item in the cart, then you have a title

Interesting thought on a fully mutli-lingual Drupal Commerce video. Will look into it.
