Field Groups are how we create the custom fields. Field Groups allow the fields to be organized and assigned in the admin by either tag or to specific products. Also, field groups do not have to be all-inclusive per product! You can assign more than one field group to a product. This allows for better organization and easier managed forms. Learn more below.
(Field Group setup should only take 2-3 minutes)
To set up field groups within the app go to the 'Field Groups' tab in the navigation bar. The page will be blank if there are no field groups assigned. Once field groups are created they will be found and listed on this page.
To add a field group click 'Add Field Group' button located under the app navigation to create a new field group.
This field allows you to set the name of the field group. The name is not visible to users on your store and is for your informational purposes only. Sticking with a good naming convention is recommended when setting up multiple field groups to differentiate between them at a glance; without having to click to see the details.
Assigning products to the field groups can be done natively in the Shopify admin through product tags. This allows for the quick addition of products to be assigned to field groups from the products page. Simply assign a tag to your products, and then add the tag here in the app. The app will now show the custom form on these tagged products!
Sort order allows you to control the loading of your field groups on a product. Your products can contain more than one field group; such as one field group to gather the basic information, another for the product details, and the last field group for adding additional cost products.
Sort order is set by applying for a number in this field. The number represents the loading position of the field group. The lower sequential the number, the higher the field group will load on the page. In this hypothetical situation, we want the Basic Information field group to load first in the form; so we will put a sort order of (1) to signify that this field group will load first. The following field groups should have a sequentially higher number and will display second (2) and third (3.) This sequential ordering should continue for all additional Fields.
|Field Group Name||Sort Order|
If only one field group is to be assigned on a product, simply add a sort order of 1.
Lastly, you can assign products specifically to the Field Groups by using the pop-up modal. Sync products to ensure that the database is updated with your latest product information and product list.
