The Guided Navigation add-on provides a left navigation that shoppers can use to narrow down a set of products within a given category. The Guided Navigation add-on has built-in filters for price range, and category/manufacturer. You can also add your own customized filtered groups and apply your product mapping within AIM to allow customers to filter down by things like size, color, instrument, etc. If you would like to add this display option to your website, please contact your Vortx Account Manager or send us over a support inquiry!
Within AIM, custom filter groups for Guided Navigation are managed under Attributes. Go to Maintenance > XML/EDI Services Maintenance > AIMsiStorefront Web Attribute Groups. Here you can add another group, name it, choose ‘GuidedNavigation’ and then select the field to be used. Below is a screenshot of this window. If more groups are added, it is necessary to update the items so that it pushes those relationships to the site.
