** NEW FEATURE: Writable customer metafields! **


With a bit of custom code in your theme, you can now update customer metafields from the front end of your shop. This means you can ask the customer for their preferences, measurements, birthday, or any thing else you'd like to gather and store them in metafields you configure using our app. If you have the coding capabilities to customize html, css, and javascript in your theme and want to utilize this new feature, take a look at this discussion thread on the Shopify forums for some helpful tips and example code to get you going!

 

Did you know you can add extra data fields to nearly every resource in your Shopify store? It's true. Shopify has a somewhat hidden feature they call metafields (not the same as meta tags) which has previously been available only to developers thru the Shopify API. The Metafields2 application now provides you the ability to add, manage, import, and export extra fields for nearly everything — the shop itself, collections, products, product variants, customers, orders, blogs, articles & pages!

The app installs like any other app and adds context-aware links within your Shopify dashboard to the app where you can create and manage all of your extra fields. The app also provides full import/export capability via CSV files similar to the way you can import products and/or customers now in your dashboard.

NOTE 1: This is NOT an 'SEO' app enabling meta tags. Although the name metafields might make you think of 'meta tags' at first, the resemblance is entirely coincidental. Its name is simply the same name Shopify gives this 'extra fields' feature via their API (http://docs.shopify.com/api/metafield). With that said, you can certainly use this app for meta tags or any other 'extra' data you want to attach to Shopify resources for SEO purposes, but its utility is much, much broader and the use cases are really limitless.

NOTE 2: This app will allow you to create, manage, and add data to metafields in your store but makes no changes to your themes or templates on your behalf. To put the metafields you create to use in your themes, you will need to do so manually, they will not automatically display or trigger any special functionality for your store. For reference, this blog article from Shopify introducing metafields is helpful.

Uninstalled after 5 minutes because the length of the meta description is limited

Very powerful. Easy to manage large amounts of data across all template types. The perfect solution for truly getting under the hood and customizing any data including richer collection layouts - which is one of the many reasons we use it - we created a secondary control panel for displaying additional images and contents to create a rich visual experience on a specific collection pages. Definitely for developer level talent to organize the fields, but easy enough for end users to manage and use them. One of the best apps we use for its shear ease and power.

A surprisingly useful little app. It solved a major problem for us (we couldn't add editable content to a particular page on our site), and this was a really slick solution. Thanks!

This app is really easy to configure then maintain.

You might find this video tutorial I did helpful if you want to add formatting or an image to the text in the metafield - http://youtu.be/u2afMxtRwjY www.eChic.com.au Shopify Experts

Works great! Allows us to add a lot of custom fields to our custom template with ease!

Basically, we wouldn't be able to carry the large assortment of personalized products that we do without this app. Straight forward and easy to use once you understand the advantage of utilizing metafields.

This app is exactly what I needed. Functionality is great.

Great app. Simple to use, very helpful for updating multiple products/collections/pages at once.

Great app, well worth the subscription, it make extending functionality a snap! We're using it for product recommendations on both product pages and articles which took 30 minutes with a bit of jQuery. We ran into a bug with the app syncing and the team was quick to respond and resolved the issue promptly. Overall, we're very satisfied.

Love this app. Initially tried the non-paid version but this version has some nice features that make it worth it in my opinion. This version of the app makes it easier to find and switch between products when you have many products to update. The import/export features are also a huge time-saver.
