  8. 8. Page 8 Support: http://amasty.com/contacts/ User Guide: Product Parts Finder for Magento 2 Here’s a sample csv structure for finder with 3 dropdowns. ‘Nokia’ is the value for dropdown #1 (‘Manufacturer’ in our case). ‘2610’ is the value for dropdown #2 (‘Model’ in our case). ‘2009’ is the value for dropdown #3 (‘Year’ in our case). ‘n2160’ is SKU of the product, which should be in search results when the three values are chosen in the dropdowns (in our case it is sku of Nokia 2610). In some cases you may have several SKUs which match the same parameters. So you can indicate all the matching SKUs in one line, like here. Please note that when you indicate more than one SKU in one line, the SKUs should be put inside quotation marks. 5. Import Values for the Finder Dropdowns

General Extension Settings You can choose whether to display ‘Find’ button only when a customer selects all finder values or when at least one value is selected. You can find this setting in admin panel -> Stores -> Configuration -> Product Parts Finder. If the option is set to ‘yes’ all universal products will be displayed last in finder search results. Choose ‘Yes’ to implement the finder only for your current category. Products in other categories will be displayed without any filtering. Simplify search process by redirecting customers to the page with one specific category according to their search parameters.

General Extension Settings In case you have 2 or more finders on the same page, set this option to ‘yes’ to clear the already specified conditions for other finders on the page in order not to narrow down search parameters.

To make it vertical in some place please use the following code: {{block class="AmastyFinderBlockForm" block_id="finder_form" id="3" template="vertical"}} If you would like to make some block horizontal, specify horizontal template for it, like here: {{block class="AmastyFinderBlockForm" block_id="finder_form" id="3" template="horizontal"}} You can use the code below for responsive finders: {{block class="AmastyFinderBlockForm" block_id="finder_form" id="3" template="responsive"}}
