Business value

Updated product variant suggestion functionality brings improved performance and usability for companies that have a high number of product dimension combinations. The improved process increases user productivity by making the generated variant suggestions more relevant.

Feature details

This feature improves the performance and usability of the Variant suggestions page when you have a high number of dimension combinations from which to create variants. The following changes are included:

  • Deferred generation of variant suggestions: The Variant suggestions page no longer shows suggestions when you first open it. Instead, you must explicitly select a button to generate them. This increases user confidence by making the process more visible and interactive.
  • Selection of dimensions values: When you have many dimension values, you are typically interested in generating variant suggestions that include just a few of them (such as when introducing a new set of colors or styles). With the improved design, you can select the dimension values for which you want to generate product variant suggestions. This greatly increases the relevance of the suggested variants and improves both system performance and user productivity.
