Overview

When user creates a Shopping Cart as a Team Cart, system handles it differently from searching point of view. Below you can find information about the possibilities to find and display such Shopping Carts.

Searching for Team Shopping Carts

There are two ways to find and display Team Shopping Carts:

  • Using POWL,
  • Using Advanced Search.

POWL

In POWL you can search for Team Carts using two standard queries. You can use the general query Shopping Carts and you can also use the specialized query Team Carts. There is one basic difference between these two queries:

  • With the general query, you can find only the Team Carts that was created by the login user.
  • With the specialized query, you can find every Team Carts that belongs to the team of the login users. These are the following Team Carts:
    • SCs that were created by a user for that the login user is set as Substitute,
    • SCs that were created by the login user.

To search for Team Carts in query Shopping Cart, user needs to tick flag Show my Team Carts. This flag works as a toggle. If it is ticked, system displays only Team Carts, if it is not ticked, system displays only normal SCs. It is not possible to display both of them at the same time. 

For standard query Team Carts, ticking the flag is not necessary as it searches only for Team Carts by default.

Advanced Search

In Advanced Search user has one more additional option in searching for Team Carts. User can restrict the search result based on the team members or they can also search for all Team Carts. Before choosing this, it is necessary to tick flag "Show Only Team Shopping Carts".

Solving Team Cart searching issues

If you have an issue with Team Cart search, follow these steps:
