Adding Fields To Collections

When I create custom collections in Content Manager, I can add whatever fields I want to pull into my dynamic pages.

I need to add additional fields to the store collections and I have looked and not found a solution. I can open the database manager, and see the table, but I am not allowed to add more columns.

Or is there a way to bring your database collections from the Content manager into the store.

I would also like to know if you can somehow tag products so users could filter the products. This is a jewelry store, so I would like to tag products with the type of gold, the type of stone, etc. So the tags my look like - 14k, white gold, diamond…

Are there apps that can accomplish this?

Hi @mic ,

You can create a new collection, add a reference field to “Products”, and add extra column. With this, you can create 2 dataset on the page (Products & YOUR_EXTENDED_DATABASE) and filter the YOUR_EXTENDED_DATABASE by reference to the Products.

With this workaround, you can extend Stores data without code, and doing other filter as you wished.

Does it solve your question?

That makes sense. I will try that and report back. THANK YOU!

Thank you for this. I think it solves my problem. I was able to link the collections.
