Product Sheet Settings

Default product sheet templateoption is defined by default. To expand the list of templates, please, contact us or your developer.
Channel – the list of channel names that are linked to the given product record. The
Only global scopeoption is defined by default, i.e. all product attribute values with the
Globalscope will be generated to the PDF file. To generate channel-specific attribute values (including multichannel attributes), select the desired channel name in the list:
Please, note that if there are no channels linked to the product record, then the
Channeldrop-down list will contain only one option –
Only Global Scope.
