Updated 27 October 2022

Akeneo Groups are used to bring products together. It is also used to filter the products. You can create a group of products and can use it as a template. Group types are required to create a product group.

You can export the group of products with Akeneo to e-commerce channels, Marketplaces, and Web Print.

Example: If you want to show some group of products at festivals or seasonal days then you can make a group of products and can export them to e-commerce, mobile, and web print with Akeneo.
