In principle, folders are similar to documents. The primary difference between the two is that you can place products, documents, and even other folders inside a folder to build a catalogue. Folders are used to create the main hierarchical structure of your product catalogue for organizing information. The folder structure for the shop in the demo tenant is shown below.
What Can You Use Folders For?
As mentioned above, folders can be used to create a hierarchical structure. This implies that you can use folders to group together similar content in your catalogue. These can then be used to make navigation easier across your website.
Example: To group similar products under one category, the demo tenant uses folders. This allows for easier navigation between products. In the picture below, Plants, Chairs, and the other topic headers are folders that contain their own products.
Examples of folder shapes you can define:
- Vendors (a folder to manage a vendor catalogue)
- Gallery (a folder to place images under)
- Specific folders to categorize products
