Some locators require multiple filters to accommodate elaborate product options.  Here's an example:


A home improvement retailer has 3 product families with different product within each family:


    1. Roofing Products

    (Tile Shingles, Slate Shingles, Wood Shingles, Rubber Shingles, Metal Shingles)

    

    2. Decking Products

    (Wood Decking, Composite Decking, Vinyl Decking, Aluminum Decking)

    

    3. Flooring Products

    (Ceramic Tile, Marble Tile, Granite Tile, Cement Tile, Porcelain Tile, Glass Tile, Limestone Tile)


Bullseye supports the ability to display multiple filters to organize this type of structure conveniently. Currently, we support only one drop down or checkbox group for each filter (we do not support nested drop downs/subcategories without creating a custom interface for multiple filters).  Here are the steps to set this up: 


Create a Category Group


See Category Groups for more information


Assign Locations to the Categories


See Create and Modify Categories (Assign Categories to a Location)


Include the Category Groups on a Search Interface


Once you have created your Category Groups and assigned your categories, you need to configure them on a search interface.  Go to Interfaces and select edit on the Interface.  Then go to the Search tab:



The category groups you created will appear beneath the default Category Filters options.  In the example above "Roofing Products" is the first category group.  This label will also appear on the search interface.  Select either Dropdown or Checkbox depending on your preference.  You may change the order of the filters by selecting the 3 lines next to each category group, and dragging them up or down. Select Save when you are done.  Here is an example of a front end with the multiple filters:
