Editing a Product CategoryBack to top
To edit an existing Category, click on its name in the Category list and update the details as necessary. When ready, click the Update button to confirm your changes.
- Category NameBack to top
Enter a new unique name for the Product Category if you would like to change your current Category Name.
- Category ImageBack to top
If you would like to crop your image, click on the Crop Photo button.
Using your mouse cursor, click and drag out an area on your photo which you would like to use for the final image. Once you have dragged out a box, you can then click and hold it with your mouse cursor to further reposition the area, if required. Any changes you make will be reflected in the thumbnail preview, directly below the main image you are working on.
You can delete the image by selecting the Delete Image option, and click Update to remove.
- DescriptionBack to top
Change the Description for the Category that will be displayed to the Customer in the booking portal.
- WeightBack to top
Category Weight determines the order in which the Categories are displayed in your booking portal. A higher number places the Category closer to the front of the list. Each Category must have its own unique weight. In a scenario where multiple Categories share the same weight, they will then be sorted into alphabetical order, while maintaining the position among the weights of the other Categories.
StatusBack to top
Click the Status button to select a new Category Status.
- ActiveBack to top
The category is visible to your customers for booking.
- HiddenBack to top
The Category is visible to your staff in the back-end for booking but is not available to your Customers on the system front end.
- ArchivedBack to top
The Category is not available to either staff or customers for booking. If you wish to use the Category again, you will need to change the status to active or hidden. Conversely, if at a later date you decide to un-archive the Category, you can do so in the same way. Just change the status to Active after selecting the Category from the main Category screen.
Archiving a Category does not permanently delete it from the system. Permanent deletion of individual Categories is not currently supported in this area. If you no longer wish to use a Category, you should simply archive it and leave it at that. If you are coming to the end of your free trial and would like to reset your system before going live, you can do a system purge which will permanently delete all Categories and whatever else you deem necessary.
