Products in Category
The Products in Category section lists the products that are currently assigned to the category, and allows you to use category rules to dynamically change the product selection when a set of conditions is met.To learn more, see: Visual Merchandiser.
To apply a category rule:
Set Match products by rule to the “Yes” position.
The automatic sorting and condition options appear.
To Match Products by Rule
To apply a sort order automatically to the list, based on current conditions, set Automatic Sorting to one of the following:
Stock level Move to top or bottom. Special price Move to top or bottom. New Products List newest products first. Color Sort alphabetically by color. Name Sort in ascending or descending order by Name. SKU Sort in ascending or descending order by SKU Price Sort in ascending or descending order by Price.
Tap Add Condition, Then, do the following:
- Choose the Attribute that is the basis of the condition.
- Choose the Operator that is needed to form the expression.
- Enter the Value that is to be matched.
Add Condition to Category Rule
Repeat this process for each attribute that is needed to describe the condition(s) to be met. For example, to match products that were created between 7 and 30 days ago, do the following:
- Set Date Created to “Less than 30”.
- Set Logic to “AND”.
- Set Date Modified to “Greater than 7”.
When complete, tap Save Category.
When setting up a category rule, the products are matched and assigned to the rule when the category is saved. Therefore, if you add a new product to the catalog and want to include it in the rule, you must re-save each category that is set to match products by rule, to ensure that the new product is included.
