Woocommerce - Variable Product Auto-complete Help (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I’m looking for some assistance with my WooCommerce store.

    I have set up my products as variable products and it works great.

    However, is there the ability to “auto complete” the remaining options after the user selects one?

    We sell router bits have options for things like cutting diameter, flute length etc. but ALSO have an option for part number.

    Some of our customers know the specifications of the bits they need (cutting diameter etc.) so they need that as a choice of getting the right bit, but others know the part number.

    Is there a way to make it so when the customer chooses a part number all the other options (cutting diameter, flute length etc.) are autofilled? Or disappear?

    I don’t want my customers having to select every little drop down menu if they know the part number.

    Here’s an example: http://cncrouterstore.ca/product/52-700-double-flute-solid-carbide-upcut-spiral-o-flute/

    Thanks,
    Griffin Coulter

    There are several ways you can do this. One is to separate your items out individually instead of using attribute variations. This is common with most online stores.

    The other way is to use JS to auto select the options when it lands on a product page with a specific part number. The JS can pull up a XML list of items/variations and do a lookup so it will know which options to select for the product the customer is on.

    Hi,

    Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I didn't see the message. If we were to separate the products individually, there would be too many, so that option wouldn't work.

    Regarding the second solution you suggested - we are not familiar with code language, so would you be able to simplify what to do?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Unfortunately I can only give you suggestions based on your needs. I cannot write all the code for you. You need to hire a developer for that.

    OK thanks, I will do that.

    Perhaps you can assist me with another issue - Woocommerce is deleting products by itself -

    Thanks again, I appreciate all your help!
