Product Group

Product Group is a method of grouping products based on some common characteristics or features. Product group is a prerequisite to define a product master in the application.

Each product must be assigned a group in Tagrain. It helps to categorize the product data into appropriate categories. There is no limit to the number of groups you can create in Tagrain. However, a product can be a part of only one product group. It can also describe the nature of the product. For e.g., for a furniture retailer, there can be Product Groups such as the living room, kid’s section, and so on.

You can set if the product group is the default group or not. This means that when creating a new product, the group will automatically be populated into the product group field for that new product.

Certain features may be restricted in integrated mode.

Product Groups are used in multiple places in Tagrain. These include functions such as reporting, discounting, and stock counts. These functions along with many others make it easier for end-users to use the system to the best of its ability.

Export a Product Group

However, if you want to save the file to a different location on the drive, you may click the “Save As” button and then navigate to your desired location on the drive and click the “Save” button.
