“Featured Sorting” is a custom feature that allows BPMs to sort products in a specific order on the Design Studio as dictated by an attribute created on the Design Manager. The value attached to said attribute would dictate how the product was sorted on the Design Studio when sort by “Featured” was selected (e.g. a product with the “Featured” attribute attached and the value of 001 would appear above a product with the “Featured” attribute attached and the value of 002).
Originally, when a user searched when “Featured” was selected, we would first filter the featured value attached to the products, so that the searching was filtered by that value.
We have changed this so that if a user searches when “Featured” is selected, the actual search query will override the Featured value.
