Product Attributes

So, we need to add attributes to the product.

This article describes in detail the functionality of the "Product Attributes" block when editing a product card in the admin panel of an online store created on the Solomono platform.

 

For example, take Apple iPhone 8 Plus. We already have such attributes as "Diagonal", "OS" and "Display", add "Memory".

To do this, we need to open the "Attributes" tab and click "New attribute", and from the drop-down list of attributes select "Memory".


Next, from the "Value" drop-down list, select "64Gb".

"Prefix", "Price" this time leave unchanged, click "Add".

Now we have a new attribute:


A couple of nuances:

Let's say we do not have the "Memory" attribute in the drop-down list, then we'll create it.

For this, we click on the "New Attribute" and the "Create" button under the "Attribute", (do not touch the drop-down list).

Before us the following window will open:

Here we enter the name of the attribute "Memory" and click "Update".

Now we have a new attribute and if you reuse this attribute, it will already be in the drop-down list.


Similar actions we need to do so that to create a new attribute "Memory", add its value.

For this, we press the "Create" button but now under the "Memory" label, (we do not touch the drop-down list).

In the window that appears, enter the required values for the new attribute and click "Update":

Then click the "Add" button.


Another situation, we need to add another value "128Gb" to the already existing attribute "Memory".

To do this, to the left of the "Memory" attribute, click on the "Add" button and select the necessary value "128Gb" from the drop-down list and click the "OK" button.


If, in the drop-down list, there is no necessary value for us, then instead of the "Add" button, click "Create" and in the new window that opens, enter what we need.

All we save.


Since the cost of a phone with 128Gb memory is higher than with 64Gb memory, we need to somehow label it.

Example: a phone with 128Gb of memory costs $25 more expensive than a phone with 64Gb, respectively, in the column "Price prefix" we put "+", and in the column "Price" we specify 25 and press the button "Update"

If we need to specify the cost of "equal" or "lower" respectively in the "Price prefix", select "=" or "-".


Here's how our attributes are displayed in the product:

 


Sometimes it happens that different products have the same attributes, and you can use templates to permanently not add the same attributes to different products.

Consider the example of the attributes of the product "Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro".

We go to the catalog "Products / Catalogue", select the product we need and click the "Attributes" tab.

In the upper right corner is the control block for attribute templates.

In order to make the attributes of this product a template, we click on the button "Save the attributes as a new template".

In the window that opens, we give a new name to the template, for example "Lenovo" and click "Update".

All the template with the given attributes is ready.

Now create a new product and add attributes to it from our template.

To do this, in the new product, go to the "Attributes" tab and select the "Lenovo" template we created from the "Templates" drop-down list in the upper right corner.

We press the button "Loads the selected template"

We confirm or do not confirm our actions in the "warning window"

If we give a confirmation to load the attributes from the template, then they will be applied to the new product.

To save everything, click "Update".

You can leave the attributes unchanged, add new ones or delete unnecessary ones.

 

Note:

In order to download the template you need to click on the "Loads the selected template"

 

In order to create a new template based on the current attributes, you must click the "Save the attributes as a new template" button and then a new template will appear in the drop-down list of templates.

 

In order to rename the template, you must click on the "Renames the selected template"

 

To delete a template, click on the button "Deletes the selected template"
