When you are selecting items from the Product Catalog, Refine Your Search enables you to narrow the list of products to those that match your search filter questions.
Search filters are associated with categories, so that the Refine Your Search questions may change when you select different product categories. The questions are also found in the product record, which is how the Product list gets refined. When you select an answer to a question and that answer matches the answer on the product record, that product is included in the filtered Product list. For more information, see About Refine Your Search..
For a product to be displayed on the Catalog page, it must match all of the selected Refine Your Search criteria.
