Easy metafield editor

1 - We understand you pain

As you know, with Kalles or Gecko or any theme from The4, we support the use of metafield for some special features. For example, if you want a different size chart for different products, so you have to install the Metafield application and configure it like this https://kalles-docs.the4.co/theme-sinstall/product-page/metafield?q=high Or if you want to have different countdowns for different products, so you have to configure like this https://kalles-docs.the4.co/theme-settings/product-page/metafield#1-countdown

So using the Metafield application excessively is a good way but it takes a lot of time to install the application, go to the application and search for the product and start configuring. Understanding this pain, we have developed a new feature to allow you to configure Metafield data much faster.

2 - Preview a new awesome feature

In Kalles, you can config Metafield data by entering a direct value to a Metafield page, like this

So all things you have to do is search for a product which you want to config a Metafield and fill the data to the Metafield you want to use.
