What is auto replication and how can I enable it? (Upcoming feature)

For any collection in a store, the merchandising of a collection can be automatically replicated to other grouped stores.

In a grouped store setting where there are multiple stores, replicating the merchandising of your collections from one store to another can be a taxing process. With the auto-replication feature, merchants can merchandise primarily in one store and the changes will automatically be updated in the other stores as well. 

Note: The collection must be available and activated for merchandising in all the stores you choose to replicate the merchandising to.

For any collection in a store, the merchandising can be automatically replicated to other grouped stores. The product positions (Find Products, Sort Products, Pinning IDs) from the source store will be transferred to the destination stores in the following cases:

    1. User updates, including scheduling.
    2. GSO updates

 Refer to the steps mentioned below to learn how to use the auto replication feature:

Step 1: Assume you have 4 stores. Choose one source store where you can make the merchandising changes as a one-time effort. 

Step 2: Once the required changes have been made, click on the Auto Replication icon at the top right and switch the toggle on. Select the destination stores from the list of stores below to enable them for auto replication. Any future changes made to the collection in the source store will automatically be updated in the destination stores as well.

Once the destination stores have been enabled for auto-replication, any versions scheduled for a future date in that store will be discarded.
Note: Auto-replication is a collection-specific configuration, which means that it can be turned on and off for specific collections based on your requirements.  

In the destination stores that have been enabled for auto replication, users will not be able to make any merchandising edits. In order to make collection-specific changes, users will need to disable auto replication in the respective source stores.
