ECOM | How to create a Featured Category using Tags

This article will explain how to feature a group of products on your ECOM menu by using tags from your POS.

  1. To create and edit a featured section on your store with a tag, login to your ECOM Mission Control at ecom.blaze.me
  2. Click on the Tags tab to view tags that have been created and synced from the POS. Tag Titles and Descriptions can be edited and toggled between Is Featured/Not Featured by clicking on the Edit button to the right of the tag row.

  4. This tag Title and Description text will now display in the store as a Featured Category, located above the primary product categories. Any product associated with that specific tag will now be visible in the Featured Category, below the text. The Featured Category will also be selectable in the Filters menu.
    1. This will look like a regular category to customers that visit your store.
    2. If multiple featured categories are created, they will be ordered automatically above the primary categories.
    3. The primary categories will continue to sort in their original order. Steps showing how to order the primary categories can be viewed here.
  5. When you are ready to remove this Featured Category based on a tag, simply go back to the Tags tab in TMC and toggle to Not Featured.
