If the product has variations, you'll see a number next to a tag symbol in the top left corner above it's thumbnail (like the backpack in the image above).

  3. The 'Add to list' icon lets you add your selection of products to a static list.
  4. The 'Link assets' icon allows for bulk association of assets with products.
