This tutorial will walk you through setting up a Product in the Product Module. The Products Module has two applications, a Product List which showcases different product offerings and a Product Wizard which allows the user to select certain features and then are guided toward the product that best fits their needs. Both of these applications can be applied to a page after building the Product inside the module.
Creating the Main Product
Step 1: Navigate to the Products Module within the CMS
Step 2: Click on 'Create New Product Type'
Step 3:Title the main Product (ie Checking Accounts) and click 'Save Changes' - this will add the product to the list of available products in the tool.
Step 4: Click on the new product type in the list to edit and set up
Creating the Individual Product Types
Step 1: Once inside the Main Product (ie Checking) click on the + sign to the right of 'Feature'
Step 2: Fill in the fields to add the details for the specific product type (ie Super Saver Checking)
- Product Name - this is what will show as the title of the individual product
- Featured (yes/no)? - when an item is selected as featured it will show up in the Product List view, if its left unchecked it will be hidden from that view and only seen in the Product Wizard
- Excerpt - this information shows on the Product Wizard view to give a short tidbit of info on the product
- Description- this is the area that formats the Product List view. Any specific formatting to a client site is done in this area.
