Using Search Filters
Search Filters in Stockist allow visitors to find locations on your store locator based on type, features, category, products carried, or any other characteristic.
Search filter basics
- Organizing stores by individual products carried (e.g. "Shampoo", "Body Wash", and "Curling Iron")
- Organizing stores by product lines (e.g. "Bath Products" and "Fragrances")
- Organizing stores based on store features (e.g. "Custom Fitting Services" or "Appointments Available")
- Organizing stores based on type (e.g. "Distributor" or "Retailer")

Apply filters to locations when importing a spreadsheet
To apply search filters when importing locations from a spreadsheet, add an additional column to your spreadsheet for each filter you've created in your account. The order of the columns doesn't matter.
In the heading row of the new column, enter the name of the filter. In each store row, add Yes in the filter column if the filter applies to that store, otherwise leave the filter column blank (or enter No).
For example, if you had filters for "Bath Products" and "Fragrances", your spreadsheet might look like this:
When importing your spreadsheet in the app dashboard, on the Identify Columns step, be sure the columns in your file are set to import to the relevant filters in Stockist:
