Has anyone been able to create a custom trait?

I have used the “many colors” option for traits, which allows me to select a few different color options, but has anyone been able to find a way to create a custom trait?

Hello MognetSales

Welcome to the Bonanza Community!

If your selected category does not have the variation you need, there is a workaround to add missing traits to a category that doesn’t currently include the trait you need.

Go into the item edit page and update the category to one that offers the trait you would like to add. This will create a field for that trait. Select the “many” option from the drop down and add the trait and available quantities using the newly added link above the item description box, then save your changes. Go back into the item and update the category back to your original category, and the added traits will still be there. Save your changes and you will now have variations available for that listing.

Here is a link from our Help pages that will explain, “How To Add Item Variations on Bonanza” https://support.bonanza.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001355112

We hope the information we have provided helps.

There used to be a link to suggest item traits for categories.

It is no longer in the “old place” and I have not found if it still exists…But I will keep looking..so check back.

You can try suggest a feature to add trait(s) for categories..

To Answer Brilliantly

Remember these tips:

  • Use links to other sources to support your opinions
  • Use examples where possible
  • Put yourself in the inquirers shoes: what extra info would be helpful?

Should I post a comment or an answer?

You can only post one answer, so make it count. Maybe your reply is more fitting as a comment instead?

Post an answer for:

  • Replies that directly and specifically answer the original question

Post a comment for:

  • "Thanks," "Me too," "I agree," or "Works for me" types of replies
  • When you would like the original poster to provide more details
  • When you have more to add to someone else's question or answer
