Part Categories

What’s it for:


Part categories are used to group similar parts together.


An example would be to group all bike components together if you are a sporting service store.


If you use Part Categories, you may want to set the Global Settings - part name format  to display drop down selection lists based on the category name.


You could also localize this subgrid to use for other grouping purposes. Refer to the section on Localization for details.


Use of Part Categories is optional in AyaNova.



Where to access the Part Categories subgrid:


from the SubGrids menu bar

Where selected and used:
