How do I manage categories for a catalog?

You can view all of your categories for a catalog by managing your catalog. When categories are created in the parent catalog, the categories can automatically be applied to each subcatalog. However, custom categories can be created in each subcatalog.

Categories will be used as part of an additional search functionality available in a future release.
