A system generated numerical ID used to identify your categories in various places throughout Checkfront. A good example of this is the use of category IDs when creating a booking page, isolating only a certain category or categories.
The name of your category. This is visible to the customer, so choose a name that will make sense to them.
The number of items currently grouped inside the category.
Determines the order in which your categories will be displayed in the booking portal. The higher the weight, the closer to the top of the list the category will appear. If multiple categories share the same weight, those categories will be sorted alphabetically, while maintaining their collective position among the other weights.
A quick view of whether the category is currently active, hidden, or archived. If you'd like to view a list of all categories that fall under one of these particular statuses, you can do so by selecting that status from the drop-down filter menu at the top.
Selecting Show All will obviously present a list of all the categories you have created (past & present) and their current status.
Sorting the ColumnsBack to top
Clicking on a category column header will organize the rows for that column into alphabetical or numerical order. After clicking, a small arrow will appear in the header cell, as seen above. If the arrow is pointing up, this means the data in the row is in ascending order. If the arrow points down, the data is in descending order. Refresh the page to reset the column back to its original state.
