You can assign a template for a specific product category, in a multitude of probabilities using the mapping function. You can reach the mapping function through:
Menu > Channel > Mappings and click on Templates tab.
> Click on “Expand all” to view all product categories. Product categories are displayed on the left-hand side and channel specific templates are displayed on the right-hand side.
> Looking at product categories treeview blue color denotes, a template has not been assigned to this product category, and green color denotes a template has been assigned. System displays assignment level by displaying the template name next to product category with a back and forth arrow in between.
> To assign a template to a product category, simply click to select the product category, drag to your preferred template and drop.
In this, example; “Makeup” template is assigned to product category at the level of “Bath & Body”. This means all subcategories under “Bath & Body” inherit the assignment and all super categories (e.g. Local categories) remains excluded from this assignment. Blue colored “Local Categories” means that there are some other categories under this level that don’t have a template assignment, yet.
> You can assign a different template to a subcategory to override its output feed; for instance, you have created another template called “BathSoaps” and assigned “Bath Soaps” product category to this template. This action will override this category’s template setting to “Bath soaps Template” and keep other categories under “makeup” template.
