Product Selection

Products selections are used in promotions, demotions, category page product lists, and more in the different eSales apps. Products can be either handpicked or included (or excluded) by rules.

Handpicked

Products can be handpicked for a selection. Selected products are marked with a green check mark and the total amount of handpicked products are shown in the top left corner of the product selection dialogue. The Search box in the product selection dialogue can be used to search for products using the search attributes configured for the products, including a product key. Products can also be imported via the menu in the top right hand corner of the product selection dialogue.

Rule based

Products can be included in, and excluded from, a selection using one or more rule sets. A rule set can include several rules where each rule can either include or exclude products where a configured attribute, such as a brand name or a product category, has one or more values found in eSales.

If more than one value is selected for an attribute in a rule, the values are to be considered as using the logical OR operator. I.e. if a rule with the attribute brand has both Adidas and Nike as values, products with brand configured as Adidas or Nike will be selected.

Each additional rule in a rule set is based on the data returned by the previous rule (logical AND operator). The final product selection within the rule set is based on the data returned by the last rule. This is useful when narrowing down a product set. For example, a rule set has two include rules where first rule has the attribute brand and the value Adidas, and the second rule has the attribute colour and the value Black. The final product selection within the rule set are products with the colour set to Black from the data set where the brand is Adidas.

It is not recommended to use different rules using include with the same attribute within a rule set as they most likely return no products. I.e. if a rule set has two include rules where first rule has the attribute brand and the value Adidas, and the second rule also has the attribute brand but the value Nike, it will not return any products at all. This is because no products with Nike as brand are present in the data returned where brand is Adidas.

Several rule sets can be used simultaneously. The rule sets operate independently of each other (logical OR operator).

Individual products included by a rule set can be excluded if they are are deemed unfit for the selection. The products can either be excluded using a rule to exclude products by their id's or by selecting them individually in the selection overview. Selected products are dimmed with a text denoting that they are blocked.
