Creating and using Matrix Templates
When creating Matrix Items, you can form Templates for data sets that are used commonly, to recall and use again, saving you time when creating similar or related item ranges
From the items database screen, click 'Create New Item'
Select Matrix Item from the dropdown, then click 'Create'
Enter all the relevant data in the starting screen and click 'Save', this will open the screen below
Under Dimension 1, click on 'Apply & Manage Templates', this will open a small pop out box as shown below:
From here you select previously created templates, edit, create and delete templates.
To create a new template, select 'Create New''
Give the new template a name and click 'Done'
Fill in the required Attributes by clicking 'New', then filling in the Attributes and Codes - Note that once you have entered the first Attribute, you can use the Tab key to move to the next cell to be populated.
Once you have entered all the data you need, click 'Save Changes', then 'Done', this will save the template so you can recall it whenever you use the same attributes in the future.
NOTE: Make sure you 'Save Changes' on any entries into the Dimension 1 table before populating any others.
Below, i have selected the template we have just made, from here i can delete any attributes i do not wish to create, or add more manually. This technique can save a lot of time, if, for example, you were to create a template with sizes XXXS to XXXL, you could then recall the template and delete the attributes you do not need, rather than manually entering all of the attributes again.
