About Editions

An “Edition” is a variation of a given product - with the classic example being a “Good,” “Better”, or “Best” progression of increasing functionality at different price points.

How Editions work

An edition is a subset of a Product located in the third tab under the product menu.

An edition acts as a standard pattern of default values for features, attributes, and advanced features.

Editions are used to easily create standard patterns of rights for different variations of a given product (i.e. 'good,' 'better,' 'best,' or 'essential,' 'standard,' and 'enterprise').

The Editions tab

In your use case, you may have one or more editions for your product. These can be easily seen and compared on the editions tab.

This is a great view to see your editions side by side in order that you can review what features you set for which edition with the attributes and advanced features also easily reviewed.

Using Editions

First, create a product, and during that process, a "default" edition is added to the set of options shown in Tabs on the product configuration page.

You can use the "default" edition if you have a super simple single product with one edition option.

Adding editions

Once you have all the "names" of the editions, you can edit them to add to the different feature sets each has in your product portfolio.

Editing editions

When you browse each edition, you will see a blue E icon next to values you have changed from the standard product pattern to make this edition unique.

Now you have some edition names. The basic concept is to edit each one away from the standard product pattern that has been created. So, you will likely have more and more features, attributes, or advanced feature options between each edition.

Enable more and more features per your model, or tweak each one to fit the "good better best" type setup you are using. Each edition should be different from the other, with perhaps the base one having the standard product pattern you started with.

Using global values

As previously discussed, you can start using global values to override, add, or change these edition options.

In the example below, you can see that "test feature 4" is a global value (has a green G icon) that has been inherited by the editions.

This is a good way to speed up the process of adding lots of editions.
