Is there a way to quickly move several products at a time from one category to another?  I hope I am missing something obvious, right now I am having to go into each product and change the category, which involves several clicks.

Thanks!

You can go to Manage categories and then click on the category you want to add products too.. you will see a tab ‘Category Products’ - click that, you can then use the filters to find the products you want to add / remove from that category smile

Hi Adam,
I’ve been having the same problem (on 1.0). Could you explain some more?
So having found them with the filter how to you add/delete/move them because there is no button as far as I can see to do any of these things?
It doesn’t seem as if you can do anything to the products you find in this way apart from open them. I can only find ‘Delete Category’ or ‘Save Category’ buttons.

You just need to check the checkbox beside the products and click save smile

Ah I see. It is a bit counter-intuitive but works if you know what you are doing grin.

To DELETE products from a category:
Press ‘View Category Products’
Leave ticked the ones that you want to KEEP not the ones you want to delete.
Then press ‘Save Category’
The products that do not have ticks are removed from the category.

To ADD products to the category
Press ‘View Category Products’
Select ‘Any’ instead of ‘Yes’ in the dropdown box on the left of the screen below the word ‘Page’
Search
Tick the products you want to add to the category
Press ‘Save Category’
The products originally in the category remain there and the products just selected are added.
