however, please note that this "Standardization system" field allows you to set e.g. an external identifier value for this characteristic while the linking to a Structure Group will happen on Category level via the left panel menu of the Characteristics Admin menu. Makes sense?
Thanks! After some trial and error it works!
Seconds too late but this would have been my reply :-)
not really. But no worries it is actually quite simple.
The concept is as followed:
1. You can create as many Categories as you like via the left pane.
2. Inside of each Category you can create your Characteristics that are grouped with it.
3. You can now assign each of your categories to one or many structure groups within your system
4. As soon as an item is classified in such a group the category and the Characteristics inside will become visible in the Characteristics tab
I also recommend to have a look into the documentation package of the release. There is a HTML library called PIM_8.1.0.00.00_TechnicalDocumentation where you will find the general documentation of Characteristics with a lot of background information, tips and tricks.
