Smartlink Apps | General Setup Menus & Feature Breakdown


Overview
Smartlinks can be configured to suit different use cases and offer control over the end user journey. The available features and settings provides easy access to specific functionality that changes the Smartlink behaviour. This article provides information on the core Configuration Menus and what they do.
This document shows menus associated with the ACP3 Smartlink. This Smartlink is one of the most feature rich, therefore contains information for a high volume of features and settings. Other Smartlinks will contain the same menus, but will have a limited number of features and settings by comparison.
When a new Configuration is created for any of the Standard Smartlink Apps, default options are enabled. These can be reviewed by accessing the Configuration menu to see which options are 'enabled'.

CREATING A NEW CONFIG

To create a new Smartlink Configuration, go to Settings > Smartlink Apps



Select the Smartlink App that you wish to create a Configuration for.


Click + Create Configuration to access the Configuration Edit menu. From here you can access the configuration setup.


CONFIGURATION SETUP

1. DETAILS
These are the basic Configuration details.

1a. Ref: Unique Config reference. The system automatically creates this when a new Smartlink Configuration is created. This Ref can be associated within Smartlink URLs to change the available behaviour according to the setup and options defined.
1b. Description: Mandatory Input field for the name of the Configuration (we recommend using relevant naming convention). This must be populated and saved before the new Config is added.
1c. Enabled Locales: Associate any pre-configured Locales to the Configuration.



2. FEATURES
Select which Features should be enabled within the Smartlink. This determines the available user functionality within the Smartlink. Currently there are approximately 70 listed features for ACP3. Based on the volume, a separate document has been created that references each feature and outlines what it does, and where necessary offers context / example use case information.





3. STYLING
Smartlinks can be styled via external CSS to change the overall appearance of the Smartlink interface.
3a. External CSS: Add External CSS to change the visual appearance of the Smartlink.


4. PRODUCT INFO
Specify what Product related information should be displayed within the Smartlink.
The associated information must be defined at product level and associated with an epa callback.




5. RENDERER OPTIONS
5a. Draw Surface Area Borders: Disable / Enable the dotted blue line (Print Area). This is applicable to 2D Blank / Virtual products that offer an interactive Live preview only.



6. MISC
The Misc menu features additional settings, including a Tab Order matrix for determining the order or sequence in which the menus appear within the Smartlink. This allows specific control over the User Journey.


Many of the Tab Order options are contextual, meaning that despite being enabled, the menu will only appear in the final Smartlink if the products are configured within Catalog with the associated functionality, eg:
  1. Text menu will only appear if Text Areas are defined against the associated product.
  2. Image menu will only appear if Image Areas are defined against the associated product.
This means that generally, fewer configurations can be created to cater for and support multiple products with varied setup.

NOTE: Some Tab Order options are not contextual and will add standalone feature into the Smartlink
