Sections and Completeness sets
Sections and Completeness sets allow you to create templates within templates and reuse them easily to work with products more efficiently.
I would like to start by showing you how to create a Completeness set.
Go to Product design > Product templates > Completeness set (tab) and click on + NEW COMPLETENESS SET.
Choose a name for it and click CREATE & EDIT
If required you may set a translation for it.
Now that we have our set created let's go to Sections and we will come back to it later.
Go to Product design > Product templates > Sections (tab).
Click on "+ NEW SECTION" and choose the name for this section, you may also add an image but this is not necessary.
Click CREATE & EDIT when you are done. Then go to the Designer tab.
Here you may create sections that you will be able to use later in different product templates or/and as a condition in the workflow. Sections may be used for example for SEO purposes, technical data, marketing information (metadata), or as a set of attributes for different sales channels.
Create your own section simply by dragging and dropping attributes. Click on SAVE CHANGES when you're done.
If you choose an attribute to be required this will be counted against completeness. I will explain this a little bit more later.
Now. To use these newly created sections go and create a new template or edit the existing one.
Product design > Product template > Main templates
Click on the Designer tab. In the side menu, you will find the new item "Sections". You can drag and drop them into your template designer. Of course in the template, you can mix sections and attributes. Save when you're done.
You will notice that No completeness set is assigned to this section. You may do it from here.
From the drop-down list choose a pre-created section and assign it. One set can be assigned to one section only.
To see sections and sets in action go to the Products > Catalog and create a new product (all product types are allowed).
Those attributes in the section that was set as required will be counted in section Completeenes.
As mentioned before, Completeness sets can be used as transition conditions in the workflow.
To set it up go to Workflows > <choose a workflow> >Designer and click on edit transition.
Go to the Condition tab, drag and drop Completeness set from Conditions column, and choose set and action. Compleated or not applicable means do not block transition in workflow if a condition is not met. Save changes.
Quick reminder. To check workflow in action go to Product > Catalog and switch view to Kanban.
PRO TIP: You may add your set to a column in the product grid so you have a quick peek at what's going on with Completeness sets.
