Working with Completeness Attributes

How to create and manage Completeness Attributes in Plytix to easily track and monitor your product's status.

A Completeness Attribute is shown as a pie chart. It is made up of other attributes and as you fill in information for those attributes, the percentage of the pie chart grows. You can create as many Completeness Attributes as you'd like to help track your products.

Applying data to completeness attribute in the product information management tool


💡  We suggest naming this attribute in function with the outcome of the completion (Amazon, Web Ready, Spring Catalog, etc).


Editing a Completeness Attribute

To edit a Completeness Attribute follow the steps to modify an attribute.


⚠️   Modifying an attribute will modify it across the entire PIM. This can alter products in Smart Lists. 


Viewing Completeness Attributes

To view a Completeness Attribute you can: 


1. Add it to your product table view



2. See it on the "Attributes" tab of the Product Detail page.  




To view which attributes are missing in a completeness attribute: 

  1. Click on the "Attributes" tab in the product detail page
  2. On the attribute groups menu on the top, choose "All custom attributes"
  3. On the right side of the page you will see all completeness attributes listed. Click on one to expand the attributes that make up the completeness and see which have missing information. 


💡 Create attribute groups with all essential attributes that make up a completeness attribute to quickly find and fill in missing information.

Filtering your products using a Completeness Attribute

You can use the Completeness Attributes to filter through your products. This helps you to identify which products have all the information complete and which are missing information. 


To do this:

1. Navigate to the Product Overview page

2. On the left Filters menu select the Completeness Attribute you want to filter by. A second dropdown will appear below. 

3. Select the condition you'd like to filter by (e.g. is equal to 100is not equal to 100, etc.). 


💡Make sure to include the completeness attribute you are filtering on in your table view to get an immediate overview. 



Once you have applied a completeness attribute filter, you can simply check which information is still missing for specific products by hovering over the completeness chart of a product and it will display you which attributes are complete and which ones are still missing information. 


ℹ️  When filtering for "is not equal to 100," as you fill in the missing information, products that reach 100% completeness will automatically be removed from the table view.  


💡  Use these filters to create dynamic product lists for internal use as well as to ensure you only send/share ‘Complete’ products.
