Properties

The properties offer you the possibility to provide your products with filterable information. Furthermore, the properties are used as a basis for the generation of variants.
For this purpose, you can create various properties and assign corresponding options to them, e.g. the property size with the options XS, S, M, L, XL and XXL.

Overview

Under Catalogues > Properties, you will first find an overview of the already available properties (1) with the corresponding property values (2) and an (optional) description (3). It is also shown here whether the properties are displayed in the product filter (4) or not.

On the right side of each line you can use the "..." button (5) to open the context menu for the corresponding property. Here you can open, edit or delete this property.
By clicking the button Add, you can open the mask for creating a new property.

When deleting a property, please note that the property with all options will be removed from all products to which it is assigned.

Since the editing mask is identical to the mask for the new creation of a property and the characteristics, we show the individual points using the example of a new property.

Creating a new property

Property

In the basic information you first enter the name (1) of the property.
The name will then be displayed later, e.g. for the products on the detail page in the product description or in the filters in the product listing.
Optionally, you can enter a description (2) and specify whether the property should be displayed in the product filter of product lists (3).
Three different views (4) are available for the display in the front end:

  • Text: The options are displayed as text in the filters
  • Colour: If a colour is highlighted in the options, it will be displayed in the filters
  • Image: An image can be stored for the individual options, which is then displayed in the filters

You can also choose from 3 sorting options (5):

  • Numerical: Letters are sorted in the order a, b, c, etc., numbers 1, 2, 3, ... 10, 11, etc.
  • Alphanumeric: letters are sorted in the order a, b, c, etc., numbers 1, 10, 11, ... 2, 20, 21, ... 3, etc.
  • Individual: With the individual sorting, you can determine the order by using the position field in the individual options. The option with the position 1 is at the top of the list.


Now, after you have entered and saved the basic information, you can add an option using the button Add value (7).


After clicking on the button a new input mask opens.
 

Values

 


First you assign a name (1) to the option, which will be displayed when using the text view.
The position (2) is used for the individual sorting to determine the order. The lower the value, the higher up the entry is in the list.
If colour was chosen as representation, the HEX colour value stored in the field colour (3) is used, alternatively you can choose a colour from the colour palette. The colour will then be displayed e.g. in the filters in the product listing.
If you want to use a picture as display, you can select a picture in the field Default image (4), which will then be displayed in the storefront.
 

Here you have the direct possibility to upload already existing pictures (1). If the desired picture is not yet available, you can directly upload it as a file (2). For adding media the following view will then open.

 



The button Upload files (1) opens a window where you can select and upload local files.
With the "..." button you can upload a file via URL (2) and after clicking on it you will switch to the view to add a file directly via URL.


In the field URL (1) you enter the URL to the desired image, then use the button Upload (2) to add the image.

After you have entered all the desired data for the option, you can add it by clicking the Apply button. Now this option is available for selection in the products.
