This request is based on the Supply theme filter system, but is needed to Venture & Debut theme too.
As a shop operator, I want to be able to provide better filter navigation to my customers
My expectation is, that I don't need to upload and download csv files to adjust product data. It must be possible to do all in store backend. It must be possible to do this in Venture & Debut theme too.
- provide this group filter to Debut & Venture theme
- add an option to the product list (not csv, but store backend), where via Bulk Editor filter groups can be added
Filter groups are a concept that is implemented using tags on some themes that use that specific single method.
A custom backend admin UI for such a theme based feature is unlikely to ever happen in shopify native.

ETL is complicated and has specific complications for each business expecting everything to be possible in the backend will just lead to needless frustration.
The bulk editor already allows you to add tags to multiple products by selecting those multiple boxes
The docs are for the general case to use common tools most busineses will already be familar with to edit ALL products.
Using spreadsheets IS the recommended path when having to do something like this as it has high corresponence with existing product data that can be used in the csv to generate those tags with excel|gsheet formulas in a way a platforms admin will not.
Otherwise the store|theme setup process has to take a sidestep and teach how to use the bulk editor.
And which specific part, or words, should someone dig into on that adds new information for someone that's been using 'advanced group filtering' technique for a decade?
