Product categories are an extra categorizing feature that do not need to be used.
It is a secondary categorizing feature.
This feature, alongside the Priority Groups, Product Families, and Product Extra Fields, are all features that do not need to be used, but can be used, if you require extra categorizing.
There is no functionality in Erply that depends on these features, they are simply meant for specific categorizing.
Product categories can be created, edited, deleted, and reordered in PIM -> Manage Product Catalog -> Product Categories.
To create a category, simply press the Add a category button.
To edit a category, click on the Edit button on the category row.
To delete a category, click on the Delete button on the category row.
And to reorder categories, hold and drag them by the six-dot icon on the left end of the category row.
