  3. Provide the product family details:

    • Code – enter the code that would be assigned to the product family you are creating.
    • Label – enter the label that would be assigned to the product family.
    • Enabled – mark the product family enabled to be able to bind a product to it.
    • Image – add an image to the product family, if necessary (optional).
  4. In the Attributes section, link the attributes to the product family and organize them into groups as described in the sections below.

Note: Ensure that every system attribute is linked to the proper attribute group in the product family. By default, they are linked to the default_group, but you may modify the link as necessary.
