Create filter group
On this page
Step 1: Create a new filter group
From your admin dashboard, go to Filters.
From the Filters page, click Create filter group
- Enter filter group name.
Note: If you leave the collection field blank, the filter group will be implemented for all collections.
Choose to show the filter group on specific Collections pages or on search results pages.
Choose the Collections to implement the filter group. You can choose multiple Collections for one filter group.
Step 2: Add filter option for the filter group
- Click on the new filter group you have just created.
- Click Add filter.
- Select Option type. The option type is automatically derived from your product attributes.
- Filter by tags in Shopify
- Filter by metafields or custom fields
- Filter by variant (option), collection, product type, vendor, price, weight, and stock status.
Enter the Label for the option type. This label will be displayed on the storefront.
Choose the option display, including List, Box, Range, Swatch. The display type depends on the Option type you set up above.
Choose Multiple selection if you allow users to apply multiple filter values of the same type
Narrow down filter option values: Only applied for filter by tags, and Multiple is TRUE. When checked, this operator is used to narrow down the value in that filter option. The products in the results must have the selected filter values. FALSE if products in the results must not have the selected filter values
For example: you have some products in 100% cotton, some in 70% cotton and 30% polyester, and some in 100% polyester. When narrow-down is enabled, users can select cotton and polyester to see products with both attributes. If narrow down is displayed, users can find products that have either cotton or polyester.
By enabling Manual filter, you can select custom values to show your customers. To do that, click Select values to show and add the values from the drop-down list. You can drag and drop the filter values to arrange their display position on the front store or apply rules to sort manual values by clicking Sort manual values.
Exclude Manual Values: this help you hide specific values from the filter. For example, you set up a filter by Collection and want to exclude "Best Selling Products", "Promotion", and "Sale" from showing in the filter.
