Manage Placeholders

Placeholders are the most basic building blocks of our extension. They should be created before any Label is created.

All of them are located at Marketing -> Promotions -> Product Labels -> Manage Placeholders section. From there, you can edit, remove, or create a new Placeholder.

How to Create New Placeholder

Visit Marketing -> Promotions -> Product Labels -> Manage Placeholders and press the Add New button. You will be brought to the Creation Page, as shown on the screenshot.
