Currently in PIM if you have a Product Property in the Visible field, and that product has no value for it, the field does not show. We'd like to request them to be visible.
Here's the use case
Customers in the USA have their ERPs filled with attributes. It makes perfect sense to us to use Product Properties to import all of the attributes, specially because they don't have the requirement to be tied to a Group.
The downside for the customers that are starting to use the PIM and/or managing some data in the PIM, now have to manually assign that property to each product, despite it being in the Visible fields, which makes it comborsome.
We also don't want to use Product Categories, because that forces us to have a dummy group just to establish the relationship
Example / Test Scenario
- Create a new Property in a "Product Category of type Properties" in Settings > Ecommerce > Product Catalogue > ...
- Go to PIM and add that property to your visible fields
- If you want to add values to 10 products, you have to perform the task to add the property 10 times (once for each product) before we can add values to it
If the field could be displayed with an indicator that it's not added (maybe dimmed) until we click on it and add a value would optimize the experience.
