To create a category, first make sure you are on the Product Management page. Navigate to the "Settings" drop-down menu. Select "Products" to get to the Product Management page.
Click the grey "Create New Category" button.
You'll see a box pop up that will allow you to create a category and change its settings.
Here, you can create and name your category. There are a few other settings you are able to edit:
This category holds substitute products:
Checking this box will make it so that your registrants can only pick ONE product in this category. This option is useful when selecting from camps, classes, or events that occur at the same time, for example.
This is a mandatory category:
Checking this box will ensure that registrants are required to select something from this category before their application is marked as complete.
Category Quota Settings: This limits the amount of products registrants can order in the category as a whole as opposed to limiting individual products. This can be useful, for example, when registrants are attending as different attendee types but your venue has an overall seat limit.
Opening up these menus will bring up a text editor that will allow you to add text to the top and bottom sections of a category. The text you add to these will be visible to your registrants wherever you place the product widget.
