Super facets

A super facet groups facets together into a broad category so users can easily filter information. In the following example, the Brand super facet organizes the Fruitful, Healthful, and Powerful facets into a menu where users can specify the category or type of content they want to display.

Example of a super facet

With super facets, the most recent facet selected is displayed above the search box. Because the Brand definition has been added as a super facet and is associated with the Asset definition, the last selected facet (Powerful) displays information including a description and a master asset above the search box.


Only one super facet can be linked to a group of assets at a time.
