how to use product_variant_multi?

Hi, I have to handle color and size for product.

Solution1 : Create custom field size and color on my product; I would end up with 4 products. I feel like it's not optimized since a lot of information will be duplicated (Description, supplier, Price, etc...)

Solution2: Install the prodcut_variant_multi. I was thinking the way this module is design, it would create one product (a template that contains all common data) and a variant that contains only color and size. We would set the quantity of the product on the variant. After installing the module, it seems that the product_variant_multi only help to generate products. So finally we end up with a 2x2=4 products and setting the quantity on a product and not the variant.

I am using this module the right way ? I am right stating that the module only serves to generate products and we set quantity on the product ?

Regards, St.

What version are you using? i don't think product_variant_multi has been completely ported to V7 yet.

The behavior your are describing, creating many product iterations, is the intended result.

The purpose of the module is to streamline the creation of many products from a list of variations that a product may have.

You would then need to increase the quantity of products based on what is in your inventory.
