    1. Show in Search Results?
    2. Show in Filtered Results?
    3. And Show in Catalog?
    4. Featured – this will show your product in featured product queries.
    5. Disable “Add to Cart”? This will change the ‘Add to Cart’ button to a ‘Select Options’ button. Useful for pre-selecting one attribute like ‘Color’ but having your customers choose the other attribute on the single product page.
