Managing Product Attributes

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Navigate to: PIM > Product Attributes > “Attributes”

Product Attributes help pass along important information about Products to customers, administrators, and Znode. New Products inherit the Product Attributes from the respective attribute family.

Product Attributes are the building blocks of the product data model. Administrators can easily create custom individual attributes to be used during the product creation process. Administrators will be prompted to reference a Product Attribute Group during the attribute creation process. 

Product Attributes are composed of Attribute Details and an Attribute Type.

  • Attribute Details are the actual descriptive characteristics of the Products.

  • Attribute Types determines what type of input to accept and, ultimately, how Znode will interact with the Attribute. Znode’s built-in attribute types are:

    • Date

    • File

    • Image

    • Label

    • Number

    • Yes/No

    • Link

    • Multi-select

    • Simple-select

    • Text

    • Text Area

Znode comes with many default Product Attributes to get the administrator off the ground. These are the most commonly used Attributes to help administrators start creating Products, however, the custom attributes can be added at any time.
