Use Case: What are the different types of Tagalys smart collections | categories that can be created?

In Shopify, the availability of attributes is limited and unlike Tagalys, it is not possible to use data from analytics to create collections that get updated dynamically. Click here to learn more about why it is easier to create collections on Tagalys compared to Shopify.

 Magento Commerce does not allow users to use attributes to create categories & Magento Enterprise has limited attributes like 'Product Type', 'Colour', 'Date', 'Price', 'Quantity', 'SKU', etc. On the Tagalys dashboard, merchandisers would be able to use other attributes from the product catalog like 'Discount Percentage', 'Discount Amount', 'Search Term', etc. along with data from analytics like 'Add to carts', 'Revenue', 'Conversion', etc.

Tagalys smart collections | categories have made it easier to create collections | categories with a wide range of data conditions and the visual ease of creating collections | categories.

Here are some use cases of collections that can be created on the Tagalys dashboard.

New Arrivals: Tagalys enables merchants to create collections based on the date at which a product was created or published in Shopify. Here is how you can create a 'New Arrivals' collection using data from the product catalog.
