Use Categories in Silo to bring together like-Products into logical groups. Categories are displayed in the Inventory list as colored tags.
Only Admins can create and manage Categories in Silo. There are two ways to create Categories:
- Manually in the Settings page
- Automatically as part of the import process
To create a new Category manually, visit Settings->Categories, and click New Category. Enter the new Category name in the window that appears.
From this point, you can now assign Products to this Category in the Inventory list. Simply select the Products you want to assign, and use the Category button (a tag icon) to modify their Category. The list that shows will be based on your own Categories. Example below:
To create a Category as part of the Product import process, set the Category name for each Product when you import via CSV.
