Example Use Cases



Delivery Information



- The standard UI dynamically calculates delivery information in working days, referencing the "Delivery information from Item Master" checkbox in the product pricing and codes tab.
- It aggregates the longest lead-time from each item master for the configured product and displays this on the configurator's finish screen.

Delivery Calculated based on Item Master

Weights



The configurator always relays weight information to the front end for potential use in custom UIs.
We also pass the weights to the Shopify created Products see Shopify App - Admin Settings

Example:
Mimeeq integrates weight data into Shopify cart products. This integration sums the weights of all item codes and attaches it to the configured product in Shopify.

Modular Products:
In modular configurations, the weights of individual components are combined to calculate the total product weight. For example, the weight for three center pieces and one corner unit is calculated by tripling the weight of a center piece and adding the weight of the corner unit.



Upcoming Features:


Mimeeq is developing customfields for Item Master, enhancing dynamic data referencing and consumption. Stay tuned for this feature, and feel free to contact us with feedback or additional use case suggestions.
