Similar to how Attributes and Attribute Sets are organised in the PIM, Options and Option Sets are used to create important relationships for parent - child products. Options are handled as specialty select box attributes, and option sets are the assignable groupings.
You can create option sets using combinations of multiple options to more fully represent your product organizational structure inside the PIM. Assigning an option set to a product will convert it to a parent and allow you to create or assign children.
Using a shirt example, there are two options: size and color. For size, there may be option values of S, M, and L and for colour, red, green, blue, and black. The option set could appropriately be named Size/Colour.
Store all of your similar option values under a single option set in the PIM. There is no need to create unique options/sets for products as the PIM will only publish the SKUs associated with a parent and not all potential option values. This removes a common limitation from some e-commerce platforms.
Assigning Option Sets to Products
Individually / Per Product
- When you are in a product page, navigate to the right hand menu to Option Sets.
2. Click Change, and search for a set.
3. Click to add the set, and then click Done.
Bulk assigning Option Sets
This can be done through an import and export via CSV. It can be a straight 2 column CSV (e.g. Product ID and the Option Set name)
To do this, navigate to the Import Export tab on the left menu.***
