Often users will need to make a newly-created field available in the SearchSpring Management Console in order to use this field as searchable data, to sort results with, and/or use as a Facet in SearchSpring-powered pages - here's how to accomplish this.
1. Ensure the field is being passed
If your site uses a cart connection for the feed (such as for BigCommerce, Volusion, or Shopify), simply ensure that the custom field is created in your admin panel.
If your site uses a feed hosted on your end, simply ensure that this data feed (under Settings > Data Feed > Data Feed Location) contains the field you'd like to add.
2. Check for New Fields
Then, under Data section, click the Check for New Fields link to start the Validation process, which will pick up any fields added recently.
3. Configure the new field
Once the "Check for New Fields" process is complete, go to the Field Settings page, and you'll see that the new field is displayed on this page - now you're ready to set the field's settings: the Type, the Multi-Valued delimiter, whether it should be used as a Sort option, as a Facet, or as Searchable data.
