How to filter product selection

The shown products of the page can be filtered by title, description, SKU, category, tag, color, price, weight, status, catalog visibility, shipping class, product type, and attributes.

Filters

For Title, Description, and SKU, you can insert a value after selecting one of the following options: Contains, Does not contain, Starts with, Ends with or Regular expression.

The list also includes variable products. If you want to add the single variations of the shop products, flag the “Include Variations” option, and every single variation will be editable just like any other product.

Yet, if you want to make a custom selection of the products returned into the table, then update the filters and click on “Select on filters“. This will only select those products matching the new filters.
