MultiExcerptNameFeature Overview

Metadata helps your customers find what they're looking for quickly and easily. Being able to narrow down hundreds of results based on specific feature criteria makes your customers happier and more likely to continue shopping with you.

Traditionally, product feature data (or metadata) has always come from the ERP, meaning someone needed to go into PRONTO (for example) to maintain this information.

But with our Best Practice Design sites, you can maintain all of your feature metadata via the CMS. No more editing first in the ERP then integrating to the web. With Product Features, you can see and update product metadata online.


Prerequisites

In order to maintain your metadata online, here's what to needs to be configured: 

  1. Product Features enabled in CMS (contact us if it's not appearing on your CMS menu)


  2. Product Maintenance Integration Mode = Online
  3. Navigate to Settings → Feature Management.
  4. Configure the Product Maintenance feature. 
  5. Set Integration Mode to Online and Save.

    1. Open the Integrator client and click the 'Set Options' link for Custom Tables.
    2. Ensure these tables are not enabled: "stock-master-extra-detail->CUSTOM_STockMasterExtraDetail" and "sytem-table→system_table".
    3. If they are selected, de-select them and click OK.

 


Once your site is configured as above, you're ready to maintain all of your product feature metadata in the CMS!

  1. In the CMS, navigate to Products & CategoriesProduct Features

  2. Click 'Add New Feature'. 


  3. Enter a name for the feature.

  5. Enter a value for this product.

  6. Click 'Add Feature' to keep going with this product's features, or Save to finish.
