To create one or more attributes within the Attribute Group you’ve just created, navigate to Catalogue Setup > Attributes > Attributes
To create a new Attribute, click on the blue Add New button in the top, right-hand corner.
Enter the Attribute Name, select the Attribute Group from the dropdown list and give the attribute a Sort Order. Remember: the lower the number entered in this field, the higher the attribute will appear on the list.
You can also set some default values for each attribute. It is important to remember that each value has to be on a new line in the text area (one value per line).
The Attribute Value will be available in a drop down box, but you can always manually enter new values in the product itself, so don't worry if you don't have all the values.
In our example 21.5" is really the only value I need for both products, but I have added 27" and 30" to show the functionality.
Use the blue Save button in the top right-hand corner to save your attribute and values. They will now be available for selection in Products.
But first, let's setup the remaining Attributes and Values, so we can see what it looks like in the store.
Just as a quick reminder, this is our Attribute Structure:
And here is my completed Attribute List. As you can see, I have not worried about the Sort Order of the attributes. I did set up a sort order for my Attribute Groups.
