item searchability

Answered

We are looking  for a feature that allows us to search for skus with out having the full sku number. For example our skus are made up of the item number and the vendor that we buy it from. We also do multiple listings with the same item number but as different lots. So we are looking to be able to type in the item number only in the search and it bring  up any or all listings with said item number.

Hi Erin, 

Thank you for your feedback. The way that our product catalog search works today is different for the SKU and product name. When you search by SKU this is "left-anchored". So, the SKU must start-with the value you're searching in order to display result/s. When you search by the product name this is "unanchored". So, the product name only needs to contain the value you're searching in order display result/s. 

It sounds like you would like the SKU search to also be "unanchored". Is that correct? Alternatively, is there another value in the product name that matches or aligns to the item number that could be used to search your products in the meantime?

Hi Erin, 

Unfortunately right now that is not an option. However, I have added a request to our inventory queue to update our SKU search capabilities in the product catalog. 

In the meantime, I will direct any customers with similar requests to comment or follow on this post as well. Feedback helps us to learn how many customers are interested in each feature and prioritize what we should work on next. I will update this thread again once this work has been prioritized.
