Inventory Categories Overview
Inventory Categories can be found under Configuration > Categorization in the left sidebar navigation in Bypass Manager.
Clicking Create Inventory Category opens a text field to enter the categories name. You can edit the name again at any time by clicking the Edit button.
You can delete a category by clicking Delete. Once an Inventory Category is deleted, it cannot be recovered and its name can no longer be used. Deleting an Inventory Category will not delete the Stock Items in it. However, it is recommended you reassign any Stock Items to a new category before you delete the category.
