Here you can see a list of all public statuses which can be assigned to products offered in your on-line store. You will typically use this property for various marketing purposes when advertising the products you sell in your on-line store on the live site. For example, if you label selected products as Featured, you can offer them to your customers together with other featured products, regardless of the department to which they belong.
You can add a public status by clicking the New public status button. The listed items can be Edited () or Deleted () and you can also perform Other actions such as Export, Backup, Restore, Destroy or Clone. After clicking the icon in the header of the Actions column, a context menu is displayed, offering options for export of listed data to various types of files.
Please note that if you are using current site settings for public statuses, the Copy from global button allows you to copy global public statuses. However, doing so, your current site public statuses will be lost (if defined). More details about how to configure global settings in your on-line store can be found in E-commerce Guide -> Configuring your store -> Multisite store.
More resources concerning products can be found in E-commerce Guide -> Managing your store -> Products.
