#Your favorite catalog and product grid settings

Under the Additional tab, you will be able to define your default catalog settings. You will find the following information:

  • Catalog locale: your default locale
  • Catalog scope: your defaut channel
  • Default tree: your default category tree
  • Product grid filters: your default product grid filters. This setting will be used on the product grid and on the published product grid (EE only)
  • Default product grid view: your default view used in the product grid.
  • Default published product grid view (EE only): your default view used in the published products grid

You first need to create at least one view to be able to see this field and to set a default view in your account.

The search bar available on top of the product grid behaves like a filter, it can be added using the label or identifier filter in the Product grid filters field.

If no default filters are defined, the system attributes (family, groups, status, completeness, creation date, updated date, product identifier, permissions, label or identifier filter) will be used as default filters on the product grid.
