[resolved] Attributes & Variations Advice (2 posts)

    When using attributes and variations what is the suggested method when one has several products and each product has different color options.

    For instance, let's say a store had Hats, Tees, and Pants. The hats options are red, green and blue. The Tees options are black, white, and grey. And the pants color options are orange, purple, and yellow.

    Would it be best to make one attribute called Color and put all of the colors in it, then go to each product and remove the colors not needed?

    Or

    Would it be best to create three separate attributes (Hat colors, Tee Colors, Pants Colors), with each one containing the color combo above? Then assign the attributes appropriately.

    I've read through
    http://docs.woothemes.com/document/product-variations/
    http://docs.woothemes.com/document/managing-product-taxonomies/

    As well as several others, but all articles only assume you have one set of colors for all products.

    Grateful for any suggestions out there!
    Thank you!

    There is no best practice for this, as it all depends on your use case. If you have no need to split the colours up in multiple attributes, there is no reason why you should do that. It might come in hand to keep them all in one shared attribute when you are going to filter on those attributes (show all products with a colour, regardless of what kind of product it is, for example) though.
