Attributes and Combination generator in PS 1.7

Recommended Posts

Good morning,
 
I have a question, in older version of PS I could change the price impact of attributes combinations by selecting just the ATTRIBUTES( for example RED -> 10 euro, GREY -> 5 euro, Small ->5 euro... and so on) then PS automatically changed the prices for all the possible combinations. In PS 1.7 if I want to change the price impact I have to use the combination generator that generates all the possible combination then I should change the price impact for every combination. I found also this topic:

Hello.
In prestashop 1.7 the combinations have been simplified, but, when you need to generate a large number of combinations with different prices and price increases, how can you manage this without having to modify one by one? For example, a sofa with several measures in which it increases the price, textures, and several combinations that also carry their corresponding increase, how do I manage this? Prestashop 1.6 gave us the option to do it easily, and Ps1.7 did not? Attached 2 images. One of Ps1.6 and another of another product in ps1.7.
I know you have the option of mass actions, but once you have already generated all the combinations, therefore you have to go selecting the different combinations and calculating prices manually. Ps 1.6 performed this automatically. Attached images
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can you help me in some way? Because for products with a lot of combinations it is impossible to set the price impact for all! 
 
So the question is: Can I make just the attributes change the price and not by modifying all the combinations???

Yup, i was just laughing my ass off when i realized that presta stripped this function in 1.7.

After two month of setting up 1.7.5 (now) i simply can´t use my shop because all my products have combinations 500+.... figured this out just now, unfortunately.

I also replied here https://github.com/PrestaShop/PrestaShop/issues/10035

I´m wondering why on this thread the last answer from desger99 is from august 2018.

No one complaining? How do you guys solved this problem?

This is a very harsh problem for all... it's practically impossible to modify attributes and their single price impacts... I couldn't find any solution and it looks like no one from Prestashop is giving an answer on that.... please write here if you find solutions. thank you all!

I too am upgrading a shop from 1.5.6.2 to 1.7.6.1 and have found this limitation. I'm wondering if this paid module will restore the capability that used to be included in the back office for free.

Bulk Combinations Generator Module - $59.99 

The current 1.7 "simplified" attributes and combinations method is unusable!

Has anybody found a workable solution?

When Prestashop updates software with major releases, the team should make sure all existing capabilities are maintained.  Many of us Prestashop users have shops that rely on features and capabilities we don't want to lose by a software upgrade. I am upgrading from 1.5.6.2 only because it will not run under PHP 7 which I am being forced to migrate to.  Otherwise, I'd be happy to stay with the Prestashop 1.5 version.  I've been using Prestashop since version 1.2.  The  upgrade to 1.7 is the first I've needed to purchase a 3rd party data migration module to move my data.  The One click upgrade process just doesn't work for me.

It seems to me that they are deliberately confusing things to give work to their partners....

Hi Rhpsody, thank you for you contribution. Honestly, I boght also that module that you mentioned and I can say that is very hard to use and quite partial for what we may need... I wouldn't recommend it unless you find a way to use it...

I can confirm the purchased module does not meet the requirements.  It is better at generating the combinations without timing out, but the ability to edit and set quantities for different combinations is virtually impossible.

I ran across this thread [Free Script] Prestools Suite: Mass Edit, Order Edit And Much More that may have a workable solution.  I am going to try this and will report what I find.

More to report and it isn't all good, but not because of the script.  The free script tools allow setting of quantities with some good query tools.  Setting of prices for combinations requires a paid version, but I never went to the next step to do that.

What I found is PS Version 1.7.6.1 will not handle the same attributes I was able to make work on the 1.5.6.2 version of my shop.  A product was defined with 7 dropdown selectors with the following number of options for each dropdown (4,4,4,4,4,4,2).   I set a default condition with 0 quantity to prevent people adding to cart unless required selections were made.  There is more than a 30 second lag from the time that the dropdown is selected and the cart button is enabled.  The same product combination on PS 1.5.6.2 responded in less than 1 second.

Based on this limitation, I will not upgrade my shop to 1.7.6.1, and instead will try upgrading to PS version 1.6.1.24.  

Prestashop 1.7.6.1 is a step back in capability from 1.5.6.2!
