I've ripping my hair out trying to understand this
I would think that Magento is capable of doing what I am about to describe, but I haven't the slightest clue how to do it. , Basically, my question is:
How can I have one attribute constitute a set of fixed attributes/values?
As an example, I will describe my ideal product input method.
- Add New Prodsuct
- Fill out product attributes
- Select a value for one particular attribute which will add a set of attributes depending on the value selected.
- Save the Product, without ever having had to enter redundant information.
Lets say a particular product has the following attributes available
- Attribute 1
- Attribute 2
- Attribute 3
- and then there is Attribute 4.
After giving Attribute 4 it's value, that value should grab a completely different set of attributes.,... such as price, weight, style number, material, et cetera.
So, when that product is finally added, it will show those attributes imported from Attribute 4 on the Website Product Page.
a more realistc example
I am selling phones. I have thousands of phones to sell. Some of these phones, however, have the same attributes, such as : weight, model, model description, brand, wired/cordless... The only thing that differentiates one of these phones from another is the Color and Price. All colors will be the same price, weight, model, and so on, but they will differ in:
- Location in warehouse
- Reference number
Furthermore, the brand will also have a brand description.
