Attribute Setup

The attribute must be defined at the product folder. Separate folders must be created if the number of attributes or the attribute labels differ from each other. All items within a folder will have a common attribute list. Complete the following steps to define the product attributes for the folder:

  1. Create an inventory folder for a group of items with common attributes by selecting Inventory > Options > Product Categories from the main EBMS menu as shown below. Review the Product Catalog > Adding and Deleting Inventory Folders section for more details on creating new folders. Right click on an existing folder and select Properties from the context menu if the folder already exists.  

  2. Click on the Product Attributes tab as shown below:

  3. Click on the Add button to add a new attribute to the list or click the Insert button to insert an attribute into the list as shown below:

  4. Enable the Check this box to include subfolders if the subfolders contain the same attribute. Click OK to save.

  5. Repeat the steps above for each attribute as shown below:

  6. Use the Move Up, Move Down buttons to reorder attributes. Click on the Reorder Subfolders to copy the reorder settings to subfolders.

  7. The default inventory item is an optional setting that is especially useful on the web. The Inventory Default Item will default the attribute settings.

  8. Click OK to save product attribute settings. Set other default values for the new folder.  

The attribute value is set within each inventory item. Continue with the next section - Entering Item Attributes to set attribute values.
