Using attribute groups

Groups of attributes help to effectively manage attributes in a similar context or by users with similar needs. Right grouping strategy can help you to better apply PIM to the organization.

Creating the group

To create an attribute group, expand the "Product design" section and then click on "Attribute groups". You will open a section that will list all of attribute groups in the system. Then in the upper right corner click the button "new attribute group". You will see a modal-window for creating a group.

Fill in the "System name"of your group (e.g. "resources") and if you want to directly edit the translations of your group name click "Create & Edit". You will be moved to editing page.

Grouping strategies

1. Grouping by assortment categories

In some cases, it is suitable to enter attribute groups that will be equal to assortment categories. This will make it easier to manage and search for specific attributes with a larger volume, for example 1000 or more.

Such a strategy is right especially in case of a very varied group of attributes for each product category.

2. Contextual grouping

A good solution for most businesses is to create attribute groups in the context of a business role. For example, you can separate groups of attributes related to product baseline information (the ones that identify the digital image of the product - usually these are: Name, SKU, basic price, EAN code, primary image, etc.), technical specification (examples here are: length, width, height, weight, material, color, etc.), marketing data (such as long description, additional photo gallery, video files, downloadable catalogs), additional technical resources (such as technical cards, white papers, use cases, etc.).

3. Hybrid model

In this model, it is worth combining the name of the context in terms of business role with different product categories.
