Select your store's default sort strategy from the Strategies screen. You can use the app's pre-configured merchandising strategies or create your unique strategy by configuring your sorting rules.
You can also modify the pre-defined strategies by editing them or cloning them and then customising them for your store.
Our app allows you to create multiple strategies that use a set of rules to sort products. You can create multiple buckets (think of them as rules that group products together) and combine them to sort a collection. Each bucket follows a rule or a combination of rules to sort products.
You can add as many buckets as you want to each strategy and each of these buckets can sort & order products by:
Pro tip: Click the Bulb Icon on the Strategy screen to learn how the sort order of products is determined when this strategy is applied to a collection.
Click the toggle button in the Status column to enable collection sorting from the app's main page.
To apply the default strategy to multiple collections at once, use the Select All checkbox in the first column.
You can also enable each collection individually and select a collection-specific strategy from a list of available Global strategies by clicking the arrow button in the Active Sort Strategy column.
When the sorting process runs, the products in only the enabled collections will be sorted based on the strategy applied.
Pro tip: You can override the sorting rules for individual collections by clicking theManage button on the main page. After this, you may disable the “Use Global Strategy” toggle button and create a collection-specific strategy with the rules that you want for that collection.
Please note: The app will only update the sorting order of products in collections that are enabled from the main screen.
Click the main page and use Product ID or Name to search and pin any number of products to a collection with an easy to use drag and drop editor.Pin Products button from the app's
You can move products up and down by dragging them in their desired order using the icon.
Featured products will show at the location where the featured bucket is included in the collection's strategy. Most stores keep the featured products as the first bucket in all their strategies so that they can control which products they show at the top.
Please note: These products will not be considered as pinned and will be ignored entirely if the featured bucket does not exist in the strategy applied for this collection, We recommend placing the Featured Bucket at the top of each strategy so that you can easily control which products show at the top.
Review and make changes to Global settings to suit your store’s needs, These settings are applied by default to all the collections that the app has enabled for sorting.
On the same page, enable "Automatically sort products" and specify a time interval and frequency for the sort algorithm to run. Since this task takes time to complete, we recommend scheduling it during a time when you are not making any catalogue changes. We also recommend running this once every 24 hours (once daily).
When enabled, the app will:
Use the “Sort Now” button for any particular enabled collection or sort the entire store by using the "Sort All Collections" button on the main page of the app.
Since this process takes time, you can visit the Sort Logs page to see the progress or reload the main page after a couple of minutes to view the Last sorted date and time beneath the collection name on the main screen.
By clicking the name of each sorted collection from the main page, you may verify that the products in that collection are sorted as you had anticipated. You can also use the report option to see how the app sorted these products with all of the underlying data.
Please note: Sorting all enabled collections might take some time depending on the number of products, orders, collections in your store. This could take anywhere from a few minutes for smaller stores to over an hour for larger stores that receive thousands of orders each month.
