Perhaps you have used one of the custom fields to hold vendor names and would like an easy way to display a list of all products from this vendor. While there is no direct method of filtering by vendor (or any other custom field), there is a simple workaround you can use.

Note that this refers to searches within your Admin Area - not by customers on your storefront.

  1. Go to Inventory > Products.
  2. Click the Search button.
  3. Scroll down to Advanced Info > Custom Fields, and type in the vendor name in the applicable custom field and click Search.
  4. All products containing this vendor's name in this custom field will now be displayed.
  5. To save this search, click the three-dot actions menu icon and select Bookmark Results.
  6. Enter a name for this search in the Add to QueryBank As field. For example "Vendor #1" and click Add.
  7. Repeat steps 1 through 6 to bookmark additional vendor searches, as needed.

Now, you'll be able to generate a list of products for any vendor by clicking Bookmark Results and clicking the link for that vendor.
