Settings available in JMango360 Back Office > Settings > Catalog Settings > Category related settings.

Synchronize all active categories with app

  1. Native App version: 1.0.0
  2. React Native version: 3.0.0
  3. Default value: Enabled


By default, your app is set to display all active categories regardless of whether they are included in the navigation menu or not. If you want it to display only categories shown on the website, just change the value from Yes to No. 

You can make use of this setting to target customers with exclusive offerings on app. In Magento Admin, just create a hidden category by making an active category exclude from the top menu. With this setting turned on, the category will appear on app only, thus serving as a "mobile-only" offering.


Select an attribute to be shown in every category

  1. Native App version: 1.7.0
  2. React Native version: 3.0.0
  3. Default value: Not specified


This setting is helpful when you want to show a product attribute such as brand or manufacturer above the product name in all product lists on app. We get all the product attributes from Magento Admin and place them in a drop-down list. You just need to choose the attribute you want and save changes.



Hide attributes with value N/A, No or Blank

  1. Native App version: 2.3.1
  2. React Native version: 3.0.0
  3. Plugin version: 2.9.2
  4. Default value: Disabled


Depending on how you set up your product attributes, it is likely that some attributes show up in the Additional tab on your product pages with a value of No, N/A or an empty table cell. You can choose to hide those empty attributes with this setting.


Select default sort direction in app

  1. Native App version: 1.0.0
  2. React Native version: 3.0.0
  3. Default value: Not specified


By default, your app uses the same sort direction as your Magento website. If you do not like this pre-set, you can choose a different default sort direction for your app. Available options: Ascending and Descending.

Align content in product category

  1. Native App version: 2.16.0
  2. React Native version: 3.0.0
  3. Default values: Align Left [Exception: Align Right for Arabic]


Content in product category can be aligned in three ways: Align LeftAlign Center, and Align Right. Left alignment is set as default for all supported languages except Arabic for which the default alignment is right. You are allowed to align content in three different view modes separately: List, Single (or One-column), and Grid (or Two-column).



Add product to cart from product list

  1. Native App version: 2.52.5
  2. React Native version: 3.0.0
  3. Plugin version: M1 - N/R, M2 - 1.6.13
  4. Default value: Disabled


An Add To Cart button in the product list makes things fast and convenient for customers as it helps shorten the purchase loop. You should make use of this button when your products have no or little product details, or when you are sure that your customers know what they are going to buy without going through the product details.

Please note that this setting applies to simple products only. Configurable products require customers to go through product details to specify options to purchase.



Auto-update categories [Magento 1]

  1. Native App version: 1.0.0
  2. Plugin version: M1 - 3.7.0
  3. Default value: Disabled


By default, updates on product categories in Magento Admin, such as adding, removing, enabling, require re-integration to be effective on app. With this setting enabled, you are allowed to skip the re-integration step as your updates will be reflected on app automatically. Please note that this setting applies to Magento 1 only.

A new product category on app will need a well-designed icon for it. Please make sure you provide an appropriate icon for the new category after the (auto) update. 

Display customized text for all products

  1. Native App version: 2.55.0
  2. React Native version: 3.0.0
  3. Default value: Disabled


Depending on your business model, you might want to display a customized text field for all of your products on app. It could be a special instruction, VAT or shipping rule, or any other type of input you can think of. 

After enable the customized text field, you are allowed to enter text in maximum 50 characters and choose the text color using a color picker. Customized text will be displayed in product listproduct detailsrelated productsup-sell products, and cross-sell products. Except for product details, customized text in other places will be truncated if it exceeds two lines.


Enable/disable filter for each category [Magento 2 React Native]

  1. Plugin version: M2 - 1.12.0
  2. Default value: Enable filter for all categories
Product filters are essential for any business that offers complex products with options and large selections. That said, sometimes due to the product nature, filters may confuse your customers or become unnecessary, thus making you want to turn off filter for specific categories. 

By default, product filters are enabled for all categories in your app. If you want to turn off filters for some categories, just switch the setting to No and deselect the categories you want to hide filters for. 



Display products in the lowest category level only

  1. Native App version: N/R
  2. React Native version: 3.9.6
  3. Default value: Disabled

Clear navigation is key! By default, categories on mobile app show products as per settings in Magento Admin. If you want to have clear navigation by showing products in the lowest category level only, please turn on this setting.
