Catalog - Visibility Management

The Visibility Management subsection is the location in the system set for Product Options. Since each Option could appear in various places, these need to be preset for the ease of Option creation.

Note: These settings are set with the help of the frontend developer, who will program the locations in the system.

Visibility list sections

ColumnDefinition
Position- Displays the actual position in the system, e.g. "customer-portal_product-details". In this example, the visibility location is set in the Customer Panel, under Product Details subsection for the specific product. The titles of the locations need to match the ones in the frontend code.
Description- The description for the visibility location. Having one is optional. It is for internal use only (for ease of Admin).
Default- Set whether that visibility location will be the default one. This means that when a new Product Option is created, it will automatically be assigned all default-set visibility locations.

Description- Set the description for the Visibility location. Having one is optional. It is for internal use only (for ease of Admin).
Option- If checked, this Visibility location will be available during the creation of Product Options.
Suggestion- If checked, this Visibility location will be available during the setup of Product Suggestions.
Default- Set whether that visibility location will be the default one. This means that when a new Product Option is created, it will automatically be assigned all default-set visibility locations.

Note: Usually, the position is first set in the frontend code. Therefore the frontend developer provides the specific visibility location name.
