Mappings

This is where you manage your mappings for use within Evolve Commerce. A mapping is simple a list of mapped values, each with a 'from' and a 'to'.

For example, mappings can be used within filters to help map multiple obscure values to more common single value. The best example of this is colours. If your products had different colours that were all a shade of 'red', you could map all these to red to provide a better filter experience for the user.

'magenta' > 'red'

'burgundy' > 'red'

Now, your users will no longer see 'magenta' or 'burgundy' as a filter option under colour. They will see 'red' instead. Then once they filter for 'red', they will get products that are both 'magenta' and 'burgundy'.
