Product Configuration Templates

Product Configuration Templates allow users a lot of flexibility in customizing the layout of the configuration screen. There are templates available to modifying the look of the configurator, responder, tabs, steps, and page. Product Configuration Templates administration can be accessed by selecting the Product Configuration Templates link under the UI Design drop down. From here user can add, delete, edit or copy Templates.

Figure A - Templates Administration

To add a new Template, click Add New. Template Name is the only required field. This is because any XSLT files that are not defined here will be defaulted to what is set in the Application Parameters administrative section. Any files set here will override the default.

Figure B - Templates Add

The Template should be named something that is relative to the product or category. The Template description can be provided if further clarification is needed. If the template Guided Selling Template checkbox is checked then that template will only appear when editing Guided Selling.
Also, Guided Selling product responder is different then the normal products responder, and default GuidedSellingSearch.xsl responder should be selected for Guided Selling templates.

Figure C - Templates Layout

There are five sections of the configuration page that user can set templates for (default files are in parenthesis):

  • Tabs - defines the look of the tab area on the page (DefaultTabs.xsl)
  • Configurator - defines the look of the configuration section of the page (DefaultConfigurator.xsl)
  • Steps - defines the area to the left of the configuration section (DefaultSteps.xsl)
  • Responder - defines the responder area where the configuration summary is given (DefaultResponder.xsl)
  • Page - defines the layout of the screen. Here you are able to control where each section is positioned on the page. (DefaultPage.xsl)

User can Upload a new file with the Upload button or Download existing files by selecting the file from the drop down and clicking the Download button. Additionally, user can delete files by selecting a file from the drop down and clicking the Delete button.
Once all information is filled in and completed, clicking the Save button will save the Template and add it to the list of Templates.
