Hello,

I'm looking for a quick way to move a large number of products into a specific category.

i.e. I have a few products that I would now like to put in the "sale" category, is there a method by which I can move them all at the same time?

Many thanks,
Hal

Hi,

You can use mass actions in order to add/remove a category from a bunch of products. You can access mass actions via the menu System>Mass actions:

Thanks for your reply,

I've been trying to use Mass Actions, but I don't know how to use it for this purpose.

This morning I have discovered that by having a simple action. (Date = Product, Action = Display the Results (Product Name, Category Id x). I am presented with an editable table, but there doesn't seem to be a way of adding categories, just changing them...

Hi,

Please set up your mass action like that: take.ms/BHDNa

You have to select the action "update the categories".

That's brilliant,

Thank you for such a detailed description.

Is there a way to filter for just products that have discount applied to them?

Many thanks,
Hal

Hi,

Unfortunately this is not possible to filter on the discounts applied to them at this time.
But that could be an interesting feature indeed, I add that on our TODO list.

If you are a developer, it is possible to develop a plugin in order to add that feature, here is the developer documentation for the mass actions: www.hikashop.com/support/support/documen...s-action-plugin.html
