Public statuses are typically displayed to your on-line store customers while viewing the product offer on the live site. For example Featured product, Sale, Bestseller, etc.
Public statuses can be defined in CMS Desk -> E- commerce -> Configuration -> Public status (or in Site Manager -> Tools -> E-commerce configuration -> Public status; global public statuses only). In this section of the administration interface, you can see a list of all defined public statuses. You can add new public statuses by clicking the New public status button above the list. Properties of already defined public statuses can be edited by clicking the Edit () icon in the Actions column. You can also delete a public status by clicking the Delete () icon.
When creating a new public status or editing an existing one, you can specify the following properties:
•Display name - the name of the public status displayed to users on the live site and in the administration interface.
•Code name - the name of the public status used by developers in the code.
•Enabled - indicates if the public status object can be used in your on-line store. For example, if checked, the respective public status can be selected from the Public status drop-down list when editing a product on the General tab.
