Assemble Your Product Portfolio in a Flash
For users who simply need an overview of the company’s product portfolio, it’s frus- trating to have to search through every single product page. They would also need to be familiar with the product name or related keywords to find the content. For new team members, the task becomes harder as they lack the basic information to even begin searching.
The solution is to create a directory page with all the relevant information your users may need about the company products. By adding metadata to individual product pages, you can then populate all the information across those pages through addi- tional macros, filtered by the metadata values.
Whether for marketing initiatives or for customer support, product pages with meta- data come in handy whenever you need well-organized information on a product.
