Webstore 04) Using Custom Tags
One interesting feature of the Advanced Webstore is the use of 'custom product tags' which can allow you to create various life cycle landing pages as well as promo pages that include custom selected products. Examples of these types of pages are:
- New arrivals & Pre-Orders
- BRAND X Instant Rebates of the week
- Clearance and Closeouts
- As seen in Glamour Photography Lighting Class
In this case we'll show you how to create a landing page that showcases products that currently have Canon Instant Rebates available for Kauffmann's Camera.
The Code is mandatory and is used throughout the www.mydakis.com and the CSV file to identify your rebate. Use something logical that you can quickly identify without having to think. In this case, canonir. Avoid using special symbols ($,%,@,#,etc) as these can sometimes be problematic. Stick to letters and numbers.
The Description is optional although can be important to set as it will appear next to the product in the website.
Scroll down the page and add the correct tag in the Tagged As area:
You can click on the red X if you which to manually remove a tag after having applied it.
Remember to hit SAVE at the bottom of the page to save your edits.
Note that products can have many tags at one time, you do not have to choose one tag over another if multiple tags apply.
When generating the CSV file, ensure that the Tags checkbox is selected along with the Brand and Product Name checkboxes. Other values can remain checked or can be removed depending on what other operations you will want to accomplish at the same time.
Each custom tag created in the steps above will show up as it's own column in the CSV file. By default, the cells for untaged products will have an (N) in them and cells for taged products will have a (Y). Changing the N to a Y or vice versa will allow you to add or remove the tag when you upload the file back to the system later on.
