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 determine what type of input to accept and, ultimately, how Znode will interact with the Attribute. Znode’s built-in attribute types are:
Creates a single date field for your attribute. Also, creates fields for minimum and maximum date values.
Text field value to aid Filters among Attributes. Supports multiple values. Values are added in the Locale/Values tab
Configure the "Validation Rule" to set the type of input accepted. The "Regular Expression" field can be modified to accept custom inputs. Toggling "Unique Value" to "Yes" prevents duplicate entries from being entered in the Text field. Toggling "Is Personalizable" allows Supports multiple values. Values are added in the Locale/Values tab.
Creates a multi-select list. Supports multiple values. Values are added in the Locale/Values tab. The concept of lazy loading has been introduced in v9.8 to display the list of values in different locales for an attribute.
Creates a single-select list. Admin can enable "Is Configurable" to make the product a Configurable Product.
Admins can toggle "Is Use For Facets" to enable this Attribute for use as Facet.
Accepts numbers. Admin must configure the additional fields “Allow Negative”, “Allow Decimals”, “Min Number”, “Max Number”
Configure Maximum size allowed to upload the file and allowed extensions files: png, jpg, pdf, doc, .mp4, .avi and etc.
Configure Maximum size allowed to upload the file and allowed extensions files: .jpg, .jpeg, .png and etc. Admin can toggle "Is Allow Multi Upload" to enable multiple files to be uploaded simultaneously.
Admin can set the "Max Character" limit from this section and toggle the rich-text "WYSIWYG" flag. Whatever character limit is set here will apply to the Import template.
Associates multiple products with a single product. Useful if trying to display related products.
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.
