The last thing you want to do as a busy business owner or employee is search endlessly for products you want to add to your MicroStore. That’s why we’ve made it easy to search, filter, sort, and find what you’re looking for quickly.
How does this work?
The first step is always to create a MicroStore and then assign to it the products you want to sell.
Before you assign a product to a MicroStore, you must first create a product.
Step 1 - Getting started
Go to your Dashboard > Sales Channels/MicroStores > Catalog. Click “Add Products”.
Step 2 - Search products
This enables a full-page interface where you can search and filter to find products. You can:
You’ll be able to see the search results and the number of search results the system has found.
Step 3 - Filter products
After the keyword search is done, you can narrow down the search result more by using filters.
Filter search results by Brand, Collection, Product Options, and Product Option Values.
When inputting text in search fields, hit “Enter” to apply the filter.
Once a filter or filters have been applied, you'll see which ones have been set up in the table. Hover over the ‘i’ icon to see applied filters.
If there are no results from a search or selected filters, try resetting your search:
Step 4 - Sort products
Aside from searching and filtering, you can also sort by product name:
Step 5 - View selected products
Once you have searched and filtered results to your satisfaction, select which products you’d like to assign to your store.
The selected items in the “All Products” tab will also appear in the “Selected Product” tab. This way you can ensure that you can have a final review of the products you’ve selected before you assign them to your store.
Once you’ve selected items in the “All Products” tab, you will also see them in the “Selected Product” tab. This way you can ensure that you can have a final review of the products you’ve selected before you assign them to your store.
You can unselect checked products in either the "All Products" tab or “Selected Products” tab too.
Step 6 - Assign products
Happy with your selected products? Assign them to the store by clicking “Add to MicroStore”.
You can add products to your MicroStore from the “All Products” or “Selected Products” tab.
Your products are now viewable in the MicroStore > Catalog > Product list.
Step 7 - Add more products
You can always add more products by clicking the “Add Products” button to perform a search and add filters again. However, to ensure products aren’t duplicated you will not see already assigned products in your search anymore.
Step 8 - Unassign products
Assigned products can be always unassigned as below:
Step 9 - Override product details
Products that have been assigned to a MicroStore, can be overridden. Overriding is the replacing of data or files in your database. Read more on how to assign a product here.
There are two entry points in the Brikl Dashboard to assign products to a Microstores.
- The first entry point is in Dashboard > Product > Sales Channel. Read more here.
- The second entry point is in Dashboard > Sales Channel > MicroStores > Catalog > Product. Read more below:
Step 1: Click the Product link
If you want to access the Master product, you can click "Open master product in a new tab".
Once you have assigned a product to a specific MicroStore, you can no longer make changes to the existing product options of the master product.
You can, however, add new product option values (for example, colors or sizes) to the master product, but those will not automatically apply to the assigned products of your MicroStores. If you want those new product option values to apply, you must visit each MicroStore and assign them individually.
Step 2: Update Product Information
You can update the Product Name, Custom URL and Product Description. Editing these fields is optional.
If you would like to add more languages, make sure to set this up for the master product first.
Step 3: Update Product Variants
Decide which variants you want to assign to a MicroStore. By default, all product variants are assigned to a MicroStore. You can adjust the assigned product variants in two ways.
Option 1: Unselect the variants that you don't want to assign to the MicroStore and click Save.
Option 2: Use the filter option (in case you have many variants to select from)
Click "Adjust Selection" to filter the production option values and click Save.
Step 4: Update Product Media
You cannot yet upload a new image to the assigned product. This feature is coming soon.
You can embellish product images on a MicroStore level. Read more here.
