What are Product Attributes?
Product Attributes are certain product characteristics and groupings that a winery can customize. Product Attributes can provide more information about a product, and can help wineries categorize information for better reports and sales analysis.
Note: Some Product Attributes must be configured by the winery before they can be applied to a Product.
Add Product Attributes
1) In the vinSUITE admin panel, navigate to the 'Products' section and open 'Product Attributes'.
2) Select a Product Attribute to add.
Product Report Groups
Product Report Groups allow you to group non-wine products into broader categories that can be displayed on certain reports in vinSUITE. You can associate a Report Group with a Product in the General tab when editing a First Party Products. Then, you can run reports that include the Product Report Group to better organize and understand your sales information.
Once you click the "Add A Report Group" button, you can enter the the name of the Report Group and click the "Save" button.
Enter the name of the Product Report Group as a broader category for non-wine products
Example: Merchandise, Sale Items, etc.
Then, you can organize non-wine products into certain Product Report Groups. For more information about assigning a Report Group, please visit the First Party Products page.
You can utilize data about the non-wine products to gather sales and other information in Report Builder.
With Wine Brands, you can define all the specific brands in your winery.
Once you click the "Add A Brand" button, you can enter the name of the Brand and the Brand Key, and then click the "Save" button.
Enter the name of the wine brand
Tip: It is recommended that you always add a Brand during the initial set up for a Product. ShipCompliant requires a Brand and a Brand Key, so every Product would need to manually edited if they do not have a Brand.
Enter the Brand Key for ShipCompliant use. This Key must exactly match the product setup in the ShipCompliant admin.
Note: This is only required for the ShipCompliant integration.
Wine Regions allow you to indicate the general region or area where a wine is created, to provide more information about your product.
Once you click the "Add A Wine Region" button, you can enter the Wine Region, and then click the "Save" button.

Wine varietals describe the general type of wines in vinSUITE. The Wine Varietals that you add will appear in a drop-down list when you're adding a new Product.
