3.9. Additional Attributes

fmSelectProductAttributes

In most cases, the product page of Store Manager for Magento displays all the information necessary for filtering and searching of products. But, there may be situations where the Store's Administrator(s), or Owner(s) may want to manage the product catalog, and display additional (non default) attributes on their product page.

The Additional Attributes is an option that allows you to add attributes to your product grid quickly.

Additional attributes button

Click the [Additional Attributes] button, in the product’s top toolbar (see illustration above). In the window that appears, select the fields that you want to add.

Display additional attributes

*Note: To facilitate the selection of fields, use the toolbar options.

You may mark all attributes by choosing the button, which will display all of the selected choices on the product page (see an illustration above), simultaneously, or you may select the required choices, individually, from the list presented.

The [Clear Selection] button will cancel the editing of the previously selected attributes, and restart the process, afresh.

Invert Selection button

The [Invert Selection] button allows to put your selected data upside down or in the opposite order.

You may display a list of attributes by code, or by the front-end label. Choose the relevant selection in the "Display Name as" field selection.

Display Name as .. field

Note: You may add any attributes to the product grid, that are of "Text Field" type (as an exception only the "Manufacturer 'attribute").

The [OK] button allows to display all selected data on the Product page, filter and sort the products according to the options chosen.

Use the Product Grid to make your Store Manager for Magento more informative and functional!

Please note, if you use Store Manager for Magento Enterprise Edition the additional attributes list, which can be added to the products grid, is more advanced and all available attributes can be added to the Products page.
