Auto – a filter will be visible conditionally. Read more about content-aware filters.
Values orderIn what order should Select values be presented?

Alphabetically – sorts choices alphabetically

By counters – sorts choices by the total number of products assigned with that feature

By term order – determines the sort order of the terms using custom ordering. Custom ordering is supported by WooCommerce, but there are plugins that do this job as well. Currently, we don’t support these plugins.
Display the filter name in applied filtersIf the user selects a feature in the Select dropdown, it will also be displayed above the products in a special section called “Applied filters”.

With this option enabled, the “Filter name” and “Selected feature” will be displayed as shown in the screenshot below. Inversely, when the option is disabled, only the “Selected feature” will be shown.
