What is a merged value?

An example: a product has one option, which is color, and the option comes with 8 different variants, including 4 shades of blue and 4 shades of green. In the filter for colors on your storefront, you might want to help your customers narrow down their product search faster with only 2 options of color, which are blue and green. In this case, our app can help you merge values to have a filter like the following picture:

The feature allows you to merge tag values and values that are used to set up Product Type/Vendor/Title/Height/Size/Color filter options. Follow this visual guide to successfully merge the values of your choice.

To merge values

Step 1: Merge values

  1. From the app’s dashboard, go to Filter > Merge values
  2. Click Add merged value
  3. Select Type/Vendor/Title/Height/Size/Color/Tag in the Type drop-down list
  4. In the Merged value section, choose +Add new merged value
  5. Under the Merged value heading, enter the phrase into which you are about to merge some values. In the example above, you can enter Blue
  6. Under the Current values heading, select the corresponding values that you want to be merged into the values you have created above
In the example above, you can select Navy, Turquoise, Teal, and Sapphire.
💡 One value can only be merged into one new value. In the example above, our app cannot merge Navy into Green when you have already merged it into Blue.

7. Make sure to save

Step 2: Sync data

  1. From the app’s dashboard, go to Sync
  2. In the Select a sync type drop-down, select Sync recent updates and click Sync recent updates. This will help you properly update the merged values on the storefront

Step 3: Update new values when setting up filter options.

  1. From the app’s dashboard, go to Filter > Manage filter trees
  2. Click the filter tree which has the filter option that you may want to update its values
  3. From the drop-down of Option values:
    • If select All values, no modification has to be made
    • If select Manual, you can add new values and remove values that have been merged into new ones. In the example above, you can remove Navy, Turquoise, Teal, and Sapphire, and add Blue
  4. Remember to Save on both Edit filter option and Filter options pages
