Specify Which Component Is Visible in a Region Based on Rules

You can configure a region on a page to hold more than one component. Then specify which component is visible to which customers or which component is visible during certain dates and times.

We assume you have already created a page with a single component in each region.
  1. From the visual editor, open the page.
  2. Click on a component.
  3. In the right pane, select the arrow next to the component name, and select Customer Groups.
  4. Select the customer groups for which you want the component to be visible, and click Apply.
  5. In the right pane, select the drop-down menu next to the component name, and select Schedule.
  6. Enter the dates and times during which you want the component to be visible, and click Apply.
    The times correspond to the customer's browser time, not the instance time.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Click the Components icon.Icon for components.
  9. Select a different component and drag it to the same region.
  10. Configure the attributes for the new component.
  11. Select the drop-down menu next to the component name, and select Customer.
  12. Select the customer groups for which you want the component to be visible, and click Apply.
  13. In the right pane, select the drop-down menu next to the component name, and select Schedule.
  14. Enter the dates and times during which you want the component to be visible, and click Apply.
    The times correspond to the customer's browser time, not the instance time.
  15. Click Save.
  16. Add as many components to the region as you want.
  17. Click the Page Structure icon.Icon for Page Structure.
  18. Expand the region that holds the components.
    All components that you've added to the region are listed. When the page is displayed, the system starts at the top of the list and checks the visibility rules for each component. The first component for which the customer and date and time match the rules is displayed. If the system checks all components and there is no match, the component at the bottom of the list is displayed. Components that are below a component that has no rules applied to it are never displayed because the component above with no rules is always a match. You can drag the components around to change the order in which they are listed on the Page Structure window.
