Thrive lets you generate variants quickly and easily using a simple matrix. In the following sections, we'll discuss when and how to use it:
When to use
This option is helpful if you have many different variants to create under a product (e.g. multiple sizes, colors, flavors, and varieties).
It is also useful if you need attribute names to appear in your e-commerce web store (such as titles on your dropdown menu).
How to generate variants
Create a new product or click on an existing product from the Inventory page.
Click "Generate Variants" as shown below:
NOTE: If the product already has (had) variants, this button will not appear.
Clicking "Generate Variants" brings up a matrix that you can populate with the different attributes you need (size, color, etc).
For example, a T-Shirt might look like this:
Once you've added all the options/possibilities, you will have the option to manually disable any of the varieties:
Click "Add Selected Variants" to create those options for the product page. Now, they can be edited further:
Click "Create variant" to automatically add all missing combinations or create a new option based on the existing attribute data.
Click "Edit Attributes" to edit or remove existing attribute data.
NOTE: When using this method, the variant names will be uneditable via Bulk Upload, because of how the information is stored.
