Location based collections

The Product Auto Tagging feature tags products with available locations based on inventory. This allows for automatic collection creation, filtering products by availability at specific locations. When enabled, all active products in the online sales channel will be tagged with the locations where they or their variants are available. The app ensures these tags remain synchronized with the inventory availability at each location, providing up-to-date filtering and organization of your product collections.

Themes with no Tag group support #

If your theme does not support tag groups then most likely your theme will have a Filter by a dropdown option to allow for filtering by Tags and location tags will appear in the dropdown automatically OR you can manually create links in your navigation for Location-specific collection pages.

Themes with support of Tag groups #

If your theme does support tag groups then specify the name of the tag group in the Location Tag group field, below is an example of left-hand navigation with the Location tag group:
