The new feature that was released by Shopify, Metaobjects is probably one of the best things that was announced in 2023 and with a great potential.
However, I have a small issue that probably wasn't developed yet.
Is it possible to use the metaobjects for products as a filter in Seach & Discovery App?
I've been using metafields as filters and know how to do it, but when a use a metafield as a reference to a metaobject, this one doesn't show as a Filter.
Is this something that can be solver?
Anyone from Shopify team could give a bit of help here please? 😀
It is not currently supported: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/online-store/search-and-discovery/filters
Using metafields, you can create custom filters for the following value types:
Yes currently is not supported, but in my opinion it makes sense to develop this solution.
If we can use metaobjects for a product it would make sense to use it as filters.
Fingers crossed, Shopify Developers will read this post and put this feature on the roadmap.
Yes, we too were excited about the potential of metaobjects as it allowed us to create a model object to better fit our products, unfortunately without this feature we will not be able to utilize them on our store...yet. If you could filter by a metafield you should be able to filter by metaobject fields?
Another +1 here. Allowing metaobjects to act as filters would open up a whole new world of possibilities and should absolutely be a priority ASAP.
We should also be able to assign metaobjects as variant options!
Another +1 here! I kind of assumed this would be possible when I set up my custom meta info. Now I have to go back and manually add tags to all products instead
+1 for this feaure... just created my first metaobject and assumed it would be available in the filters but then realized it wasn't. Really disappointed that we have such an advanced feature that allows us to create consistent data for products (i.e. list of specifications/features) but can't let customers filter by them.
Yeah, I could have all specific product fields in a metaboject but now I had to move some to the product to be available in the filter. Such a mess 😞
Yes, us too! We'd like to be able to allow customers to filter our products by ingredient, which are set up as metaobjects and referenced on each product.
