Hi everybody,

I need to distinguish produc accessories. As far as I can see accessories (suggestions) can be related to products. I need to distinguish between necessary and optional accessories. Can this be done?

Cheers
Robert.

Depends a bit what you exactly need. If there are optional products that makes sense to buy them together, than the suggestions are the right place. If the products are more or less part of the product but you can only choose between two or three variations, then a product variant or a product attribute would fit best.

So ok that looks like there´s no easy way to have different suggestion types. I will suggest the customer to build bundles or variants of products that need to be sold together anyway.

Thanks for taking care.
Robert.

Well, in fact there are already different suggestions types (suggestions and bought together products). You could add another subpart for a new suggestion type without problems if you only need to display these two groups of products separately.
