What Is The Purpose Of Product Categories?

Product Categories are an essential element for managing products, every single product within Product Manager 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.

Where Can I Access Categories?

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

How Do I Set Up A Product Category?

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.
  1. The 5-6 digit numerical reference code for the category ID
  2. The name of the category
  3. The ability to enter advanced detail
  4. Identify the path of the category

To be able to make a category, you must enable the "Tree View" which will allow you to head to the category location where you can expand the categories and with a left click you can create a new subcategory or edit the name. This has been shown in the below image.
