Adding Multiple Categories

Adding Multiple Categories

I am using PowerStore2.

Before purchasing the PowerStore2, I spoke with a customer support agent who told me that I could assign multiple categories to a product. I do not see how this can be done.
Example: Carhartt is a category, as is Wrangler. Both of these are Clothing items. I want the customer to be able to click on Clothing to get ALL clothing related items, but if they want to get specific, they can click on the Carhartt or Wrangler categories.

Examples of Menu Items:
Sporting Goods
- Water Sports
- Fishing
- Hunting
- Camping

Clothing
- Carhartt
- Wrangler
- Summer

Shoes
- Boots
- Sandals
- Sports

Etc...

Update on Multiple Categories for PowerStore2

Unfortunately, I seem to have found an answer in other forums. It seems that you cannot assign multiple categories to a product. I am a little bit irritated as I was assured that I would be able to do this.

Here is the exact quote from my representative:

"Yes, you can assign two categories to one item. There is nothing within PowerStore to prevent you from doing this. All you would have to do is add that product to both categories."

What was meant by this was that you would add the product to the database two times. Once for the Carhart category, once for the Wrangler Catagory. In other words, duplicate entries for everything except the category.

Then you would have duplicates for almost every product. Is this really the only way of doing things? When someone was to look at all products, they'd see several of the same product (especially if that product was in more than two categories).

Yes, in the currant version of power store this is the only way that a product can be added to more than one category.
