Manage Product Search Results

Authors list

There are many ways you can manage your search results in ESP Web.

How to Mark Products

Marking products means you are selecting them so that they can be held on the Clipboard, added to a presentation, saved in a project or sent directly to customers.

  • From the List View:
  • From the Grid View: 
  • From the Image View: 

After marking products, the Marked Products Toolbar will appear

Options for Marked Products

After marking a product, a toolbar will appear which will enable you to manage the product. The available options are:

  • Create Presentation: Create a new presentation using the marked product(s).
  • Send: Send the selected product(s) via email with a PDF attachment. This option also enables you to download or print a PDF containing the marked items.
  • Copy To: Move the marked item(s) onto the Clipboard or into a Project folder.
  • Compare: Add the marked product(s) to the Product Compare ribbon.

Note: Marked products will carry through to all of the views. This means you can mark an item, view more information about it, and then return to the results without having to remark items.

Use the Clipboard

What is the Clipboard?

The Clipboard is a handy feature which enables you to hold up to 250 items. From the clipboard, you can compare products, send them to a customer, copy them to project folder, create a presentation, or even start an order! Items saved the Clipboard will be held for up to 90 days.

Add Individual Products to the Clipboard

  • From the Quick views: Click on the Save button.

In the example below, the product is being added to the Clipboard from the List view.

Adding Multiple Items to the Clipboard

You will then be prompted to configure the product for order.

Compare Products

Locate the item(s) you would like to compare. Mark the product(s) and then click on the Compare button from the Marked Items toolbar. 

The item will be added to the Product Compare which will open below the search toolbar.

After adding all the products you would like to compare, click on the Compare button.

You can remove a product from the Product Compare bar by clicking on the X to the left of the item. You can also clear the Product Compare by clicking on the Clear All link.

If there are over five items to compare, you will need to scroll horizontally to view more than the first five. In the Product Compare, you can select the fields you want to compare. You can use the Show all fields link to view all available comparison fields and the Show only marked fields to view only the fields you have selected. You can use the arrows for each individual field to sort in an ascending or descending order.

You are also able to click on the wand icon in the bottom left corner of the product image to create a virtual sample. Additional items can be added from the clipboard. You can remove products by clicking on the Remove button. You can remove more than one item at a time by marking products and then using the Remove button. Mark products from within the Product Compare and then use the Add button to add the selected item(s) to the Clipboard, an existing presentation, a project folder, or create a new presentation.

You can type a quantity in this box that will show the accurate prices in the list price and net cost rows. If the item is not available in the quantity you entered, that criteria will be grayed out in the Product Compare.
