Introducing the Game-Changing Product Filter: Your Catalog's Best Friend!

We’re excited to share the latest addition to Product Experience Manager: an additional filter that will revolutionize the way you manage your product catalog and ensure all of your products make it to your site. Say hello to the "node assignment filter" – your new best friend in product filtering capabilities!

Now, you may be wondering, what exactly does this new filter do and why is it so crucial for your success? Well, let's dive right in.

Picture this: you've spent countless hours curating the perfect product assortment and optimizing your catalog. But alas, some products mysteriously go missing in action, failing to appear on your site and leaving your customers (or colleagues) scratching their heads. Frustrating, isn't it? That's where the node assignment filter steps in to save the day!

For those who aren’t familiar with the term “node”, they are subcategories of a product. Think of product node assignments as the secret handshake that grants products access to your catalog's exclusive club. Without a proper node assignment, products are left out in the cold, unable to strut their stuff on your site. With this new filter, you have the power to effortlessly filter out those neglected products and ensure they never get lost in the shuffle again.

So, what can this nifty filter do for you? Here's the lowdown: 

Unleash the Power of Organization: The node assignment filter empowers you to wean out any products which do not have any node assignments. As I’m sure you’re well aware, products without any node assignments will never make it to your site, meaning your customers can’t buy them.

Streamline Merchandizing Efforts: With the ability to filter out products lacking node assignments, you can swiftly identify any gaps in your catalog and take action. Whether it's assigning nodes to missing products or revamping your overall catalog strategy, this filter helps you stay on top of your merchandizing game and maintain a seamless shopping experience for your customers.

This new filter is all about improving efficiency and saving time - the real benefit for you; the merchandiser.  Instead of trying to manually comb through and find which products haven't been assigned, this automates the process - saves you time, eliminates headaches and makes it so merchandisers can focus on other projects, faster!

We understand the value of an organized and optimized product catalog. We believe that every product deserves its chance to shine, and with the node assignment filter, you'll never lose sight of your hidden gems. Our commitment to empowering merchandizers like you drives us to continuously enhance our products with features that make a tangible difference in your commerce journey.

So, what are you waiting for? Embrace the power of the new node assignment filter and unlock a new level of control and visibility for your product catalog. Your shoppers will thank you, and your sales will (hopefully) soar!
