Predefined Product Filters

With an integrated third-party search engine (see Search Index Services), Intershop Commerce Management features flexible product filtering options. Catalog managers can predefine product filters. Predefined product filters are then available for dynamically assigning products to catalog categories, or for automatically populating page components with products, intended to be displayed, for example, as special teasers on category pages.

Predefined product filters apply either directly to a catalog/category (see Assigning Products Using Filters) or by assigning specific, product filter-aware pages, see Managing Category Content Views.

For details about managing product filters, see Managing Product Filters.

Another application for predefined product filters are customized assortments. This feature allows to personalize browsing and searching in catalogs. For details, see Concept - Customer-Specific Assortments.
