The product catalog is a separate folder tree in the Products section, as well as Invoices and Orders sections, that can be identified with the icn_products_catalogue.png icon (Fig. 3).

You can create the catalog structure based on categories, types, filter conditions, and other grouping criteria that you set for products. This enables you to classify and quickly search for the needed products.

The product catalog is available in the folder tree of the Products section. To open the product catalog, select Filters/foldersShow folders.:

You can set up catalog levels by certain grouping criteria, for example, by category and type. To do this, use the Set up product catalog option in the actions menu of the Products section (Fig. 2).
