Custom Product Lists

How Tos (2)

You can find this section under Interface & Design > Custom Product Lists in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

You use this section to create customised product listings and criteria listings which you then add anywhere you want on a Custom Content Page. You can create separate lists for different countries and restrict the lists by brand and by category. You can also configure specific criteria for the lists including year, seasons, gender and offer type.

The main CustomProductLists.aspx screen appears as follows:

Custom Product Lists main screen in IRP Admin

You can use the search bar to find any Custom Product List in the system and if you expand 'Other Options' you can filter by Type — Product List or Criteria.

Once you have created Custom Product Lists you add them to Custom Content Pages using the procedure described in the How To Add or Edit a Custom Content Page help topic.

For more details about Custom Product Lists, see the How To articles in this section.
