In order to begin using your product feed in your designs, you'll add each field in as a layer to the canvas. Each layer linked to a product feed field will appear with a green bounding box. Each linked layer acts as a bridge to that product field (images, prices, titles, etc). You can then build your design template while shuffling through products to ensure the template and layer properties work across all of your products in the set

Add a linked feed layer to the Canvas

  1. Click on the Source Feed icon in your left navbar

  2. Drag your desired column asset onto the canvas

  3. Begin designing!

Depending on if the layer you've added from the feed is an image or text layer, you'll see different property options appear on the right side.

Shuffle Through the Products from Feed

You are able to shuffle through different product rows as the example asset to preview on the canvas. To do that, you should:

  1. From left navigation, click Columns tab

  2. Click shuffle button on the top of the column panel

Change Linked Column

To change the column your layer is linked to, double-click the linked layer on the artboard and select the new column from the dropdown.

Add Column Modifier

Text columns can use column modifiers to help change the way the information in the linked column is output. To add column modifiers, double-click the linked text layer on the artboard and select + Add Column Modifier. Then, select the modifier you'd like to add.

Once you've finished your design, it's time to add it to your output feed
