OK, so here is my situation...
Our store (like many I am sure) sells to both retail/commercial customers as well as direct to consumers. When a customer account is created and stored it is indexed and then displayed in the admin panel /admin/customers/ by "Name" (First Name and Last Name of the individual). This is fine for our individual consumers, but it is NOT good for our commercial/retail customers.
I tag customers appropriately as "consumer" or "commercial" and use the app Lockdown to restrict a collection of products only for our commercial customers.
Is there a way to display the commercial customers in the /admin/customers/ page by their "Company" field vs. "Name"?
OR... Can/should I create custom account registration form that replaces/uses the "Name" field with the "Company" field only for commercial customers?
Any thoughts on how to accomplish this would be GREATLY appreciated!!
I'm in the same boat. My customer needs to quickly see which company his customers are from on the "/admin/customers" page without deep diving into each customer profile...so a column for this value would be a wonderful solution.
Any insights out there would be vastly appreciated!
Many thanks in advance!
@Anthony_Underwo I realize this is an old thread, but the Customer Fields app is a great solution for this. You can ask for the customer's company name during registration and easily see company name in the app's customer directory, which offers advanced filters & segmentation compared to /admin/customers. (The data is also saved to Shopify metafields which allows you to use it in more places if necessary). 🙂
