One of the most useful tools in Sales Layer is the search bar. As Sales Layer can handle around two million references, it’s crucial that you are able to filter easily, as well as having a labeling system that is both agile and simple.
Sales Layer allows you to search through your product catalogue in multiple ways. If, for example, we search for "red", Sales Layer will search for “red” in every field of every product; this means we might get back some results we are not interested in. To improve on this, we can set it so that Sales Layer should only look for red in one specific field, for example the colour field.
To do this you start by typing
As well as using
It’s also possible to search using multiple criteria at once, by separating them with spaces.
You can fine tune your searches further by choosing to include or exclude certain criteria using the + and - signs.
For example, in the above search we are choosing to show those products which have red and blue in their colour field, but do not contain the word “contrasting” in their name field. We can also search based on when a product was last modified:
select: modified yesterday select: modified Tuesday select: modified 2018-08-12 select: modified> -”5 months" select: modified>"30 december 2017" select: created > "20 october 2019" select: created > Today
Finally, you can also find the search bar in other places in Sales Layer: such as in categories, variants, workflows, and channels, where it can be used to create a channel that only exports content based on specific search criteria.
