To assign Fields to a product:

    • Field key - Set the system key for the Field here, i.e. the "name" of the Field that would be recognized by the system database.

    • Name - Set the name for the Field which could be visible as description/characteristic for the product.
    • Value - Set the system value here, i.e. the setting's value set as default for the product.

      The Field is then added to the list of Fields for that product.

  6. To add an Extra Field, click on "Add Extra Field" and the necessary settings to complete will be displayed.

    creating a field

    Complete them as follows by choosing whether the Extra Field will be of type "Extra Field" or "Descriptor".

    • Extra Field - Provides one line to add additional information as simple text for the product, e.g. "SSL security".

    • Descriptor - Provides two lines to add additional information for the product with Key and Value. They have to be again hardcoded as data in the key-value database, in order for the system to pick them up.

      The Extra Field is then added to the list of Fields for that product. Save all changes to complete the Fields setup of this product.
