Can I import Filters?

We have two formats available for importing Filters from your XML or CSV feed:

Format 1

XML feed (inside your product tag)

<Filter_group>Filter_name<Filter_group>

CSV feed

Column name: Filter_group, Column value per row: Filter_name

These formats will import the tag/column name as the filter group name, and the contents of the tag or column value per row as the filter name. The default sort order is 1. 

Example:

XML

<Color>Green</Color>

CSV 

Column Name: Color, Column Value for the product row: Green.

This will be imported to the product, and create a filter group named Color, and assign the filter name Green to this group.

Format 2

XML feed (inside your product tag)

<tag><![CDATA[ Filter Group Name > Filter Name]]></tag>

CSV feed

Column Value per Row: Filter Group Name > Filter Name

This format will allows you to import bother the Filter Group Name and Filter Name inside of the tag/column value ; instead of importing the filter group name from the tag name or column name. If you choose this format, you will need the use the > symbol to designate the relationship of the Filter Name to the Filter Group.

Example:

XML

<link>Color>Green</link>

CSV

Column name: link, Column value: Color > Green


This will be imported to the product, and create a filter group named Color, and assign the filter name Green to this group and this product.

    I like this feature a lot, but not for nothing, at it's present state it's pointless. I have like 100+ categories, and manually assigning the filter to the category for it to be actually used is impossible. Such a big drawback.

    How can a user import multiple filters belonging to the same group?
