Problems & Solutions
Effective option assigning
With the default for Magento 2, the manual method only allows the users to add an option for one product each time. Thus, it is an obsolete function that requires redundant actions for your admins while they can utilize it for other tasks. Therefore, Mageplaza Better Product Options assists admins to apply options to multiple products all at once. It is a valuable measure to save time for option settings.
Better admin experience and site performance
With many tasks to do, admins are often overloaded. Hence, to encourage admins to work with higher productivity, you should eliminate excess actions. When you experience this cutting-edge tool, actions are cut down to only necessary ones. Also, the accuracy of the frontend output, product option diversities, and site performance are possible to achieve when you integrate Mageplaza Better Product Options to your store sites.
Enhance customer experience
It is annoying if you purchase something and then realize that item has another color or size that you want, which you did not see previously on the product page. Mageplaza Better Product Options module can display all options so that customers can view and choose quickly.
Use Templates To Add Options
Adding options will no longer be a time-consuming task with the help of options templates. You can feely generate more templates to apply to store products. To do so, you need to make sure the created templates contain option title, options type, option price, and options SKU. After creating the templates successfully, you can link them with any product available in stores. Besides, all the repeated actions to apply the same option to many items will no longer be needed. It is all thanks to the templates method, that the admin can enjoy a better backend experience.
Flexible To Assign Product Options
After you create the templates with suitable options, the admin can utilize many methods in order to assign templates to store items. The first method is applying product ID for the assignment of products to particular templates. Secondly, using Product SKUs is also possible in this case. On the template edit page, you can choose to insert one or multiple product IDs or product SKUs. Additionally, the store admin can access the Product Grid to apply templates for many items.
Modify Templates Onsite
Template adjustment is available even when you select a template on the Product Edit Page. It is easily done by unticking the “Link template” checkbox and the admin can continue to edit template values with ease. Editing at the same time while loading templates will save some time for admins. Thus, it enhances flexibility when changes need to take place.
Assign Templates In Mass
The Action Box at the Product Grid is available for admins to assign templates for mass products.
The admin can set each option a default value.
After a template has been removed, the link between the products and that template will be removed or unliked.
