I have a site that will be selling picnic tables, sheds, axes and baseball bats and more. The client has provided the attributes associated with the products.
Picnic tables have a finish attribute that is searchable but is not filterable.
Sheds have a finish attribute that is not searchable but is filterable.
Axes have a finish attribute that is not searchable nor filterable.
Baseball bats have a finish attribute that is both searchable and filterable.
I have more products that will have the finish attribute in one of those different ways.
Should I enter the finish attribute four times with four different configurations? Or would you add attributes for each attribute set such as baseballbat_finish, axe_finish?
If anyone has had to make these decisions before, would you please share your decision and why you arrived at it?
