When managing catalog categories, you can create categories for your catalog and subcatalogs. Categories are created from tags added to course or program listings, as well as subcatalog names.

Any categories in the parent catalog can automatically apply to subcatalogs. However, you can choose to create your own categories for a subcatalog.

  • When viewing the parent catalog, the subcatalog list displays all subcatalogs in the account.
  • When viewing a subcatalog and inheriting categories is disabled, the subcatalog list is filtered to only show subcatalogs that descend directly from the subcatalog you are viewing.
  • The tags list always shows tags from all subcatalogs across the entire account.

 

Note: In subcatalogs, you cannot add a new category if the subcatalog is inheriting categories from another catalog.
