Type 1: Categories
In Categories type, the result in filter sidebar is showing up all of your collections by default.
You can not change the result of filter to specific collections you want. Just can hide it
Type 2: Filter by
1. Shop by tags list
Filter By is a type which you can custom what variants can be show in the sidebar.
The variants can be Color, Size, Material, Brand, ...etc
Step 1: First, you change the "Filter by group title" from 'Filter By' to 'Color'
Step 2: "Shop by tags list" is what? Please create some tags such as Red, Blue, Green for some of your products, like this
Step 3: Then enter these tags to Shop by tags list box, the words you enter must be identical to the tag words.
Finally, you can check the result of showing in the sidebar
Let's make another example
Create a Filter for Material
Step 1: Rename for the tittle
Step 2: Add tags for the products which you want to show in the result of filter
such as: Ruby, Gold, Silver, Diamond like this
Step 3: Enter these tags to Shop by tags list box, the words you enter must be identical to the tag words.
2. Custom for auto filter groups
When you use this type of Filter, you need to select a key word. I choose "Color" is my keyword.
Note: the number word of key word is only 1 word
Step 1: Add some tags for your products which you want to show in the result of filter. And add the keyword you choose before each of tags, like this
Step 2: Delete the tags list box above, then enter the Keyword only.
You can see the result after saving. As you can see, there are also the other colors here. Because I also add other color tags to the other products, not for just these color tags
So you should select the unique keywords to add to tags of specific products
