Whole product shows as sold out when default variant is
When a product's default variant is out of stock, the whole product listing is shown as Sold Out in the product search results. This is not good since there might be several variants of the same product which are still in stock.
For example, let's say that the product is a pair of shoes. By default we set size 10. Size 10 sold outs. Now that shoes will appear as sold out in the product result, even though we have 15 pairs of size 8, 9, 11, and 12.
Is there a way to make the product not appear as sold out when variants still have stock?
The only workaround I found is to change the default variant to one with stock. But this is a manual process and doesn't scale when we have thousands of SKUs.
Thanks in advance,
