PARTS FINDER: SMART AND HANDY
Stable work with large data volumes
The Magento 2 Product Parts Finder ensures stable work with large catalogs of 10k + products. Better module performance is determined by the usage of AJAX for options load. The data is stored in separate tables for easy and prompt access.
Smart partial search
Advanced Magento 2 parts finder allows customers to select just one filter value in a finder to start looking for specific products. Thus selecting all options is not required.
Automatically save selected options
All filter values specified by customers will be immediately saved. This handy option allows online shoppers to browse through other store pages and then come back to the product filter page without losing previously saved filter conditions.
Add search results to bookmarks
Allow saving search results to the bookmarks. Users won’t have to waste their time trying to find the page with the products they've previously selected. Thus shoppers will be able to share custom search result links with others.
Display compatible options
When customers navigate to a desired product page after filtering by the finder, they can additionally look for all the other compatible options of the product they are interested in.
Efficiently manage cron tasks
Manage all existing cron tasks on a Cron Tasks List grid from the admin panel. Run cron tasks and generate their schedule by clicking the ‘Run Cron’ button. Delete tasks in bulk, use filtering and sorting options when it is needed.
VARIETY OF DESIGN AND DISPLAY OPTIONS
Enable finder on a home page for a quicker access
With the part finder Magento 2 extension, you can display product filter blocks on the store home page. Thus, customers can start searching for the necessary items right from the landing page without wasting time on exploring website categories.
Enrich finder options with images and labels
Make your parts finder more vivid and engaging for shoppers. Arrange finder options the way you need, choosing:
- Images to display brands' and manufacturers' logo without any text;
- Labels to display series or models more accurately;
- Images & labels together in the styled blocks;
- Dropdowns - default plain variant to display options without any styles, plainly.
User-friendly parts finder block design
Fine-tune the display of the product finder according to your specific needs - either use one of the predefined Magento 2 product selector templates or generate your own one. It's also possible to use both vertical and horizontal templates at the same time and show them in different locations.
Place product finder on a category page in one click
The Magento 2 part finder module enables you to display product finders on any category page and apply filter conditions only for the category where they are displayed. You can multi-select categories and specify the position, i.e. sidebar, content.
QUICK & EASY DATA IMPORT
Manage finder records and remove in bulk
To delete or add a few new records to a product finder there is no need to replace the whole existing list with a new one. You can simply remove products via mass action and add new ones and their options manually in the admin panel.
Quick CSV upload with Drag & Drop
Import files manually with a drag-and-drop option or upload them via FTP. Once the files are downloaded it's possible to check all the imported files in the Import History tab.
Import values for filter options
To speed up finder configuration process import values for selection options in CSV format and assign them to corresponding products. View the imported data to check if everything is correct and up to date.
Use ranges for numeric values
Simplify data import by setting ranges for numeric options. For instance, if you need to specify years 2007-2018, the extension will show products for all years from the specified interval. It allows you to create just one line in CSV file instead of 11.
NOTE: You may also automatically upload images using import options. You won’t have to assign each image to an option manually - the Magento 2 product selector identifies the necessary values in a CSV file. Just match option names with the image names and add media content to filters in a few minutes.
More features for your store
- Redirect to the product when there’s only one result
When there is only one result available, you can redirect customers right to the product page they are looking for.

- Apply only one finder at a time

How can I add Parts Finder block on homepage?
- 100% Open Source — Easy To Customize
- Follows Magento Code Architecture
- Separated HTML/CSS/JS
- Simple installation via Composer
The only down side is the static seperator for imports ( "," ) and since we have imports with names that includes a comma in the name we had some troubles. But after we changed the seperator in the extension file we were good to go. Unfortunatly we had to do that on our own since the developers were kinda slow in that manner, but still an amazing extension which i would by again any time.
