Hello Ashley and Michael,
I am the new contact person for working on Race Driven’s new website. Pasted below is a shortened version of the filtered navigation that Race Driven wants.
As you can see the first filter is selecting the “Machine Type” which will have the choices ‘ATV/UTV’, ‘MX/Offroad’, and ‘Street’.
The second filter will be the make which will pop up a list depending upon what is selected under “Machine Type”. For example if someone selected the machine type ‘ATV/UTV’ then (Arctic Cat, Can-Am, Honda, Kawasaki, Polaris, Suzuki, and Yamaha) would pop up under the “Make” for ATV/UTV. And if someone selected “MX/Offroad” then the following makes will pop up. (Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki, and Yamaha).
The third filter would be the year which would bring up (show) different models according to the year selected.
The fourth filter would be Model. After the fourth filter is selected then a list of parts would be shown for that particular model, year, make, and machine type that was selected.
Attached to this email is a larger sample than what is pasted below for reference.
It is requested that no parts show up until all four filters are selected.
One of the difficult things to keep in mind is that some of the parts are only available for half of the year. For example a part applies to January to September of 2005 and then October to December it switches to another part number. In cases like it is requested that on those parts we leave a message to double check if the part number is right because it is a “Split Year”. Another option if feasible is the make the category year in half? For example 2005 (1) and 2005 (2)?
If it is too much to ask for just let me know.
Brian are there enough “half-year” parts to warrant this?
Michael (Alexis) and Ashley, does Big Commerce need to supply Nextopia with a master template to work off of from?
Ashley and Michael (Alexis), can Nextopia work off of a spreadsheet like I supplied in this email? Would a spreadsheet template like the one I supplied to this email work with Big Commerce Michael?
The difficulty I see is that when a spreadsheet with new prices, makes, models, descriptions, etc. is uploaded to Channel Advisor which in turns supplies the information to Big Commerce, Ebay, Sears, Amazon, etc. would this effect the custom tiered, filtered navigation that Nextopia is going to develop?
Will or can the custom navigation have to rely upon changes uploaded to Channel Advisor which will change the info on various sites like Ebay, Sears, amazon, etc.?
Since the machine type, make, year, and model will NEVER change will it make a difference?
Also, when new years are added with new parts how is this going to affect displaying them on the website along with Nextopia’s custom menu?
Is the Nextopia custom filtered tiered menu going to be directly fed or affected by product change uploads is the big question here.
