Item Variations

This feature will allow you to group all the item variations on one page and quickly switch between them by changing the item options.

How it works:

In your Google Sheet you create a row for each product variation with all the information, image link, price, SKU, etc. For example, if you have T-shirts that come in three colors (White, Red, Green), you'll need to create three different rows, one for each color.

Then, in your dashboard, you group your items by type (e.g. T-shirt) and set the variation options (e.g. Color). After that, all the data will be crosslinked correspondingly and you'll be able to see all the options in one page. Each variation will have its own values (price, image) and its unique URL. On the details page a customer will see all the distinct options of available variation alternatives.

Now let's break the setup into simple steps.

Setting up Item Variations:

Prepare your Google Sheet content, keeping in mind that you need to have a row for each of your item variations. The more variations, the more rows you need to create and fill with data.

In your Content Tab, switch on Enable variations toggle.

In the Group by column menu dropdown select the column with the grouping factor (type) to group all your items according to their types (e.g., T-shirts, Dresses, Socks, etc), product line (iPhone 12) or pretty much anything that has some alternative variations

In the Variations options menu select the corresponding columns (e.g., Color, Size, Quality, ect) the system will collect the distinct values from each of selected options columns.

Enable Group cards by type to see as many cards as there are items types (e.g., only T-shirt, Dress, Socks, etc). On the details page of these card you'll see the option switcher that is automatically set.

Without enabling this option, you will see all the variations as single items.

If some of the combinations are missing (e.g., the white T-shirt comes only in one size), the system will indicate there're no alternatives available.

Make sure that your route URL is unique. If the values repeat, the system will take just the first one and will ingnore the rest, which can cause a confusion.
