What Is The Purpose Of Product Categories?
Product Categories are an essential element for managing products, every single product within the platform is going to be found within a category. We at KornitX have allowed for our customers to use categories by managing and updating their own products.

Any user with access to the platform can access categories. To do so, simply head to the "Settings" cog wheel in the top left section of the system. You can then see the "Categories" option which is shown in the below screenshot.

When you first access "Categories" you will be greeted with the list view containing a view to all of your existing categories.
From this list view you can identify the following, which is highlighted in the screenshot.
