How to Mass Assign Products to Categories using the Visual Merchandiser

Previously the only way to mass assign products in Magento was using import / export, which would still require the creation and configuration of a csv with correct category paths, or IDs if using the dataflow profiles option. Enterprise Edition 1.14.1 introduced a new way of doing this which can help save time when needing to mass assign products to categories.

How to Mass Assign Products to Categories using the Visual Merchandiser

  1. Navigate Catalog > Manage Categories, and click into the category you would like to assign products to.
  2. From within the category, click into the Visual Merchandiser tab, and then click Show Visual Merchandiser, to open the visual merchandiser popup.
  3. From the popup, select the applicable storeview from the Storefront dropdown, and then select 'Mass Product Assignment' from the Options dropdown. Once happy with both selections, click 'Submit'.
  4. This will then open another popup with a large empty box to populate with SKUs you are wanting to assign to that category.
  5. SKUs will need to be listed in this box each on a separate line / row (as shown below)

 

 

6. Once all applicable products are listed, click Assign Products.

Note: You can also unassign / remove products this way using the Remove Products button.
