deeply nested categories
« on: September 22, 2022, 06:19:14 PM »
Hopefully I can explain my problem
I have several layers of nested categories.  When trying to add them (and Products) it's creating a huge mess scrolling through literally hundreds of categories.  IS there way to select them in a more logical manner? 
Im having to scroll pages and pages of categories each time I want to add a product or category.
My industry is similar to the automotive parts where there is a lot of subcategories to get to the product.
example:

brand
-model a
-model b
-model c
-model d

then under each model:
-model a
---group 1
---group 2
---group 3
---group 4

Then each group would contain the products.  From the shoppers side it works great, but admin side is a nightmare.
Im coming from zen cart and it wasnt so bad there.

Try using the filtering  -  it will get you into the cat/subcat for editing or adding new products

Here is how it works for one of our clients that has a similar requirement for cat/subcat/ and sub/subcats
refer to screens shots
