Is it possible to set up grouped products?

Posted on by 5

Is it possible to create grouped products in D365 Commerce?

My company is currently running Magento and we sell spare parts for industrial mowers. We're looking at integrating our e-Commerce system with our D365 ERP system to automate online orders. Currently each order received on Magento gets processed manually.

We're considering switching to D365 Commerce instead of trying to integrate Magento with a third party connector and I'm investigating the viability of this.

One of the things we have on Magento that I can't seem to find in D365 Commerce's documentation, is grouped products. This is when you have a sub-assembly for a mower, you show an engineering drawing of the assembly and list all the parts that go with that sub-assembly. These exploded drawings are quite common on automotive e-Commerce sites.

Example:

    RE: Is it possible to set up grouped products?

    To add to the exiting suggestions; you might use a 'product collection' module and in that module you have a couple of configuration options that could work for you - 'Related products' or 'Curated product list'.

    docs.microsoft.com/.../product-collection-module-overview

    With related products, assuming you also have a product in the system for the sub-assembly, then on the product details page for the sub-assembly you can show the related items - just go to the product setup for the sub-assembly in HQ and specify product relations (including a 'relation type' that you can also define.) I can't see any docs article about that setup but it is there :)

    With a curated list, this is a free form list not directly linked to a master product ID, so you could simply create a list for each sub-assembly and use that list in the 'product collection' module wherever you like on a relevant page. Docs link:

    docs.microsoft.com/.../create-editorial-recommendation-lists

    One other tip, based on the exploded diagram image you shared, there's an 'Active image' module that would allow you to specify coordinates on the image which represent the individual components, users could hover over and jump to product details for the component directly:

    docs.microsoft.com/.../active-image-module

    (you can see an example of this in action on the www.adventure-works.com/ demo site, just scroll down the page until you get to the 'Grand Coast collection')

    Kits behave the same way like you sell a product master in Ecommerce. Logically you should be able to sell them on Dynamics 365 Commerce online store without any issue. However, if you want additional functionalities like showing the kit components on PDP, displaying a kit as available based on the on hand of components (where you don't preassemble and keep the kit in on hand), you might need some customization.

    Hi Paul,

    can we use product Kit setup for online channel.

    we have done a product kit setup which is working fine in CPOS but the same is not working in web store.

    Regards,

    Bharath Jain.

    B2B ecommerce supports something order templates which will allow you create templates (or group products). While this may not completely suffice your requirement, can be a good starting point.

    You can use Retail Kits to group your products. Please check below link.

    Investigate 'Kits' and also 'Bundles'. In HQ Kits require warehouse assembly orders to be processed in order to book the component stock out and the top-level Kit product in. Where as Bundles explode the component lines on to the sales order. I don't know if either work with a Commerce online channel.

    Otherwise you might have to think outside the box in terms of known online Commerce functionality for the Navigation hierarchy and product categories and/or Product Attributes, and somehow develop an 'Add-all' to basket for the shown products on the page/in the category or with the same product attribute.

    Good luck!
