Learn about the types of attributes you can use to filter products in a brand portal.
When creating a brand portal you can enable filters and choose which attributes to filter by. This allows visitors to filter through the products in the portal using the criteria you set. This article lists the different attribute types you can filter by and explains the settings of each.
Accessing The Filters Settings of a Brand Portal
To access the filers settings, go to the brand portal you want to update, then:
1. From the brand portal set up page, click on “Designer” on the right
2. Click on "Product overview" in the left side menu
3. Click on the settings icon to the right of "Filters"
Available attribute types
From the filters settings, you can add attributes to filter by. You can rename how each attribute is displayed in your brand portal, and each attribute type comes with its own set of options.
You can choose attributes of the following types:
Dropdown and Multi-select
Decimal and Integer Type Attribute
With both decimal and integer attributes, you can select a minimum and maximum number to filter by.
When choosing to filter by Boolean attributes, visitors will see two options. The default options are "true" and "false", however, these values can be customized.
Dropdown and Multi-select Type Attributes
When it comes to dropdown and multi-select attributes, you can choose between showing them as a list or a dropdown. See the examples below.
ℹ️ Displaying an attribute as a list allows visitors to filter by more than one selection.
⚠️ Displaying an attribute as a dropdown means the visitor will only be able to select one option, even if it is a multi-select attribute.
The categories attribute allows you to choose between displaying the attribute as a tree or a dropdown. Displaying the attribute as a tree allows visitors to filter by more than one category, while displaying the attribute as a dropdown restricts visitors to filtering by one category at a time. When enabling the option to filter by categories, you can also choose the level of the category tree to show.
ℹ️ Choosing "Index" makes all categories assigned to a product in your catalog visible.
