How To Renumber Items To Group By Category

When entering items, you can assign categories and group them in the catalog. However, as items are entered when they arrive their item numbers are often not contiguous within a category. The item renumbering page can be used to reassign item numbers so they are grouped by category.

To set this up, click on Items in the main Auction Dashboard menu and then click Numbering.

Settings

There are four fields to set in the Settings panel at the top of the page.
