Dynamic Product Data

Using our Dynamic Product Data module allows you to track custom data about your products and as much of it as you want.  Here's an example a wine shop might use:


While this wine shop wants to track these additional attributes of a product, you can define your own data fields.  Another example could be carat, cut, clarity, size for a jewelry store - the options are endless.

This data can be used for:
  • E-commerce integration (data you can pass to your website)
  • Printed on labels
  • Printed on receipts
  • Emailed in receipts
  • Shown on back office reports
This data, however, does not automatically appear in these places.  This requires some premium services from our technical staff if you desire it.  Also note that it is not currently available at the POS or searchable in the product search form, though it could be displayed in a report.

Encrypting Product Data

Occasionally, you might find it helpful to keep some data regarding your products encrypted. This could be used, for example, to track a non-advertised cost. In order to encrypt the values stored, you must make the following changes to the Attribute in question;
  1. Select Admin > Attributes
  2. Search for, and edit the attribute in question.
  3. Switch the Attribute type to 'Custom'
  4. Under the Custom Editor Setting, type PasswordWithPeek
  5. Under the Additional Data Setting paste; { UseEncryption: true, htmlAttributes: { style: "min-width: 200px; max-width: 400px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto" } }
  6. Save and exit.
Now, when viewing the encrypted attribute, you will see an eyeball icon next to the field. Anything you type will be encrypted, but you can click the eyeball to 'Peek' at the value. The 'Peek' will last until you move your mouse from the cell.
