This extension allows Magento 2 store admin to quickly sort products in categories via drag and drop enabled interface. It dramatically improves product management by allowing you to set products order of appearance quickly with your mouse only.

Once installed, it allows for adjusting products order of appearance by simply using your mouse and dragging product rows. It's designed to solve the cumbersome process of inserting product sort position manually.

Overview

Magento 2 administration panel is powerful and easy to work with but it lacks a few essential tools which can make store owner's live a lot easier.

This extension allows you to quickly set products order of appearance via drag and drop interface. You will no longer have to insert positions manually or bother if position index already exists. The extension does this automatically for you.

Enabling drag & drop

The extension is enabled by default, however to sort category products by drag and drop you need to change the number of visible products in the grid. You'll notice a new option "Show All" under "View" dropdown in the category products grid. You need to set view to "Show All" to activate product sorting by drag and drop.

If a limit is set sorting will not be possible.

To sort your products by simply using your mouse, follow these steps:

  1. 1. Go to Products -> Categories

  3. 3. Expand Products in Category tab
  4. 4. Set "View items" dropdown to "Show all"
  5. 5. Click any row and drag vertically

  7. 7. Save category
  8. 8. On a few occasions, the default frontend sorting could be different. Remember to set it to "Position"


Known Limitations
