It seems there is no way to assign multiple products to a category without manually editing each product and assigning it to a category.

It would be extremely helpful if we could do this in Manage Products.

So for example you could search for whatever you want and then check the ones you want and let us type in a text box what catagory we want to assign and then click save to update selected products.

text box should allow multiple categories by comma just like in dataflow.

OR let us search for products through manage categories, first choose which category and then have a new tab where we can search for products. Check the box next to which ones we want to add and then click save category.

Thanks. I didn’t realize you have to change the drop down to any and then reset the filter so you can search.

Still can’t assign to multiple categories at once but this is almost as good.

You can add products in bulk to single and to multiple categories at once with Mass Product Actions extension. Besides, you can do this right in the Manage Products section.

I bought Amasty and it works incredibly well for what we require. If you assign a few hundred at a time you may need to change your index management settings to manual update and later index. Otherwise it can take quite long to save in real time.

found an easy way…
(ALERT: Take backup of ur products first by exporting everything to CSV File)

Best for new websites :

1) delete category,
2) create new category,
3) before saving the new category, on category product page it will show all products,
4) filter products based on attribute (for me there was a common name in the name of each product)
5) select all products and assign to the category.

Hardly takes a min..

Caution : use with caution rasberry
