When installed, Magento 2 layered navigation extension automatically applies functionality improvements to native navigation, with just a few optional features left for administrator to decide on.

Case Studies on how to :
Speed up filtering and save time for purchases allowing customers to select multiple values of product attributes simultaneously.
Sometimes customers are not sure about the final set of attributes for the products they need. Hoping to make a final decision during their visit to a store they may still hesitate between attribute options, e.g. different colors, sizes, capacities, etc. So, at this stage of catalog navigation they need to filter products by attribute variations and compare them to each other. And, mindful of the fact that 40% of users never return to a web site if their first visit is a negative experience, we should pay close attention to the navigation usability.
The process of selecting attribute values one by one is going to be twice or thrice longer than the time required by the multiselect navigation functionality. Combination of this functionality with automatic disabling of void options accelerates the process manifold.
New visitors on average spend 2 minutes 31 seconds on ecommerce websites, which is quite short time to find the product, add it to the cart, and pass the checkout. The multiselect functionality allows customers to find the products they need quickly, provides them with excellent user experience, and increases the probability of a purchase.
Avoid any usability pitfalls that make customers feel lost and disappointed. Let customers find the products they need and reach checkout without irritation.
It is quite obvious that simple and convenient navigation is able to increase conversion rates of any ecommerce store. Navigation usability becomes even more important if we’ll take into consideration that 79% of visitors search for another website if the content is not optimized.
However, sometimes extensive and complicated catalogs require sophisticated navigation functionality that is not always easy to use. The Magento 2 Layered Navigation extension complies with most of the industry usability standards and allows customers to browse any catalogs fast and effectively.
- New Filters. Additionally to the default Magento 2 product filters, the module offers some useful options, including ‘New arrivals’, ‘Discounted products’, ‘In-stock Items’, and ‘Price Slider’.
- Multi Attribute Filters. Long multi attribute filters passing beyond the fold of a screen page are extremely frustrating for customers as soon as they break the flawless shopping experience. According to statistics, 77% of people view only the content above the fold. The way to avoid this inconvenience is to wrap those multi-attribute lists showing only a limited number of attributes.
- Disabling Irrelevant Options. If a customer selects certain attribute values the module automatically hides void attributes releasing customers from the need to select null options.
Statistics shows that 25% of customers exit online stores due to complicated navigation. With the above feature customers are able to finish filtration successfully, find the products they need and be ready to visit the store again.
Get Layered Navigation for Magento 2 prepared for customizations and Magento integrations.
The same as Magento itself the Layered Navigation extension uses LESS functionality that allows customizing navigation section easier and conform it with the appearance of your Magento theme. The advanced functionality of LESS provides additional customization opportunities and makes the whole process simpler and cheaper.
In addition to the valuable functionality the Layered Navigation extension for Magento 2 also enables layout improvements that will fit the overall visual conception of your store.
Make layered navigation intuitive and prompt without page and even AJAX reloads.
Perhaps, the most annoying thing of any catalog filtration is constant page reloads triggered by each product attribute added to filter configuration. They take time and test your patience.
The Magento 2 AJAX Layered Navigation allows you to reduce that impact updating only a part of the whole page and making reloads almost invisible for customers. However, the module is able to further reduce the number of AJAX reloads to only one single code execution.
If enabled the ‘Show X Items’ popover allows customers to include all necessary attribute options and only then render the results by clicking the ‘Show’ button. Depending on the number of used attributes this functionality is able to save up to one minute per each filter by attribute procedure.
81% of customers search products online before they make a purchase. If they do not find the products they need in your store, they go to another one with no regrets. This situation is exactly what the Layered Navigation for Magento 2 helps to avoid.
if the popover disabled the product count matching related filter is displayed in brackets
Check out selected features below or view documentation for a full feature list
Several attributes of a single filter may be selected at the same time, which isn’t possible without the extension
Product selection may be narrowed down to show new, discounted, in-stock items, and items within a particular price range
Once the filter has been applied, some attributes may become irrelevant to the current selection of items. The extension disables those options not to mislead the customers.
On a mobile device interactive item count is displayed not in a pop-over, but via a special count bar at the bottom of the page, which is less distracting and easier to interact with
Page is not reloaded until the customer has chosen all the filters. Additionally, AJAX support allows to refresh only the part of the page that contains search results - no full page reloads.
As attributes are selected, an automatic popover shows how many items match current selection.
It is possible to disable the popover feature from the extension settings. In that case the page will be updated each time a new attribute is selected.
The extension works both for catalogue pages and for search result pages
