Product Groups

How Tos (3)

You can find this section under Products > Product Groups in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

Product Groups allow you to group products together that fall under the same parent group. You can link similar products in groups, for example, tractor and car parts that belong to a particular make or model of tractor or car.

Site visitors use the ‘Fast Find’ user control to access the Product Groups on the front end of your website (you can modify this using Small Translation ID 1704). To make use of the user control, you need to enable the Enable Product Groups Application Setting (located in the ‘Navigation - Left’ section). You can also find this in the Product Settings section of IRP Admin.

The user control provides two drop-down selection lists that will appear at the top of the left navigation bar on the front end. The first drop-down control lists all Product Parent Groups. When a visitor makes a selection, the second drop-down control is populated with all Product Groups in the selected Product Parent Group:

Product Group User Control on front end

When the selections are made (either the Product Super Group alone, or the Product Super Group and Product Group together), the visitor should then click the Go button. They will then be redirected to the SearchResults.aspx page.

The SearchResults.aspx page will show all models in the selected Product Super Group or Product Group. The title of the page includes the Product Group name or the Product Super Group name, depending upon the selections that the visitor has made.

The ‘Fast Find’ menu also appears on your mobile site. To see this, first expand the menu icon on your mobile site:

Then click the ‘Fast Find’ option:

You will then see the Super Group and Sub Group drop-down menus displayed for you to search:

The search results are then displayed on the MobileSearchResults.aspx screen in the same way as they are on the desktop site. The following example has one model only as a simple example:
