Introducing Product Groups

19 Nov

We have introduced a powerful new feature to the Freewebstore Control Panel…Product Groups.

Product Groups allow you to perform a single action on all the items in a particular group saving you time when editing lots of products. For example you could create a group of products called “Specials” and apply a discount to all these products with a single click.

To get started you need to create your own groups of products.  There are a few ways to create a group.  One way is via the Manage > Manage Groups section of the Freewebstore Control Panel.  Another quick way is to set a filter on the Manage > Products section and add those filtered products to a group.

Once you have created your group you can do bulk editing on those products via the “Action” button.  Some of the actions you can perform include changing the category, editing the stock level or even changing the price.

One exciting feature of Product Groups is the ability to create Group Specific Coupon Codes. Once you have created a group you can then create a coupon code and on the “Groups” tab of the coupon entry form select your new group as the only group allowed to use it.   You could have a group with only one product in it making it a unique coupon code to that particular product.  How good is that ?!

Got a suggestion for an action to perform on a group? Use the comments section below and we will happily add it to our road map.

    Hi,I agree this is a nice feature, you can have a group of products at discounted price when a customer uses a coupon code assigned to this group … I wonder if it is possible to have a product at discounted price for a limited (specified by the seller) time?Thanks
