- The Product Details fields that are seen during the product creation and edit process directly correspond to attribute groups associated with the chosen Attribute Families.
- Products need to be published in order to see them on the webstore.
- The dimensions i.e Weight, Height, Width, and Length should be a whole number (non-decimal) for FedEx shipping.
Steps to create a static value field
Administrators can have fields that users cannot edit in PIM. This is most often needed if information needs to be passed to the site from a system of record (E.G. your ERP), to display on the store, but only can be changed in the system of record, not in Znode.
Step 1: When creating an Attribute, use the data type “Label”
Step 2: These fields will only be viewable.
Note - This applies to product attributes, media attributes, category attributes, and global attributes.
