Change the category of several products at the same time

I want to change the category of several products at once, I select all the products that I want to change category, I click on option "Update attributes" but I can not find a way to update the category of all the products at the same time. Any ideas? (Magento 2.3.1)

Re: Change the category of several products at the same time

Hi Manuel,

 

The better way to change Category attributes in bulk, aside from doing so on a spreadsheet, is through Catalog --> Categories.

 

From here, you can select a category or subcategory. You can then go to the Products In Category section. 

 

From here, you can remove checkboxes to remove products from a category. You can also change the dropdown toggle from "Yes" to "No" or "Any" to be able to see products that aren't yet in the category, and associate them to the category.

 

This is your best bet for bulk adding and removing products from categories.

 

Best of luck!

You can't find the Bulk Update Category option since Magento doesn't provide this feature in mass actions.

 

What you can use instead is Magento 2 Product Grid Inline Editor

 

It allows you to change the category for multiple products at once in a few clicks. All you have to do is to go to Catalog > Products and choose all of the products you want to change categories for.

After that, you just go to Update attributes and select categories to add products to and remove products from.

 

That's it.

 

Besides, if you want to change categories for a single product, you can also do it directly from grid.

 

You can check out the video in this article about bulk category update.
