Special Values in Rule-based Carousels

When you are populating a rule-base carousel you will find that the Value input will change when you select Item Department, Item Category, Item Brand or Item Theme from the Field menu.

At the bottom of the Value menu will be the value From this department, From this category, From this brand and From this theme. These are special values which need to be used carefully.

Example Use of From this department

If you include this rule in a carousel rule set, it will restrict this carousel to only including products from the current department if the carousel is located on a department, category or product page.

Outside this pages the rule will be ignored as the carousel won’t know which department to pick.

Example Use of From this brand

If you include this rule in a carousel rule set it will restrict this carousel to displaying products that match the current product brand name.

This restriction only works on product pages. Off product pages this rule is ignored.
