How to create and manage completeness attributes in Plytix to easily track and monitor your product's status
Completeness attributes are great to keep track of a product's readiness for different purposes - e.g. tracking whether a product is ready to move from "draft" to "published," whether it has all the media and information needed to be shared on your website, or if it contains all the required fields for Shopify, to cite just a few examples. A completeness attribute is made up of other attributes and as you fill in information for those attributes, the completeness percentage grows. You can create as many Completeness Attributes as you'd like to help track your products.

Creating a Completeness Attribute
To create a Completeness Attribute follow these steps:
- Navigate to 'Settings' in the top menu.
- The Settings area will automatically open in the "Attributes" section. If not, you may not have permissions to manage attributes.
- Click the '+ Create attribute' button in the top left corner.
- Choose "Completeness Attribute".
- Name your attribute. A label will be automatically generated (you can change the name of your attribute at any time, but you are unable to change the label). Click 'Next'.
- Under "Available attributes" select the attributes you want to define your completion. These will be shown on the right under "Selected attributes".
- Click 'Create Attribute'.
💡 We suggest naming this attribute referencing 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:
- Click on the 'Attributes' tab on the product detail page.
- On the "Attribute Group" menu on the top, choose 'All custom attributes' or any attribute group that contains a completeness attribute.
- On the right side of the page you will see the 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 not equal to 100).
💡 Make sure to add the completeness attribute you are using to filter 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 which attributes are complete and which ones are still missing information.
💡 Use these filters to create dynamic product lists for internal use as well as to ensure you only send/share products that reach 100% completeness.
