# 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.

Check the Silent checkbox.
Finally, click on Renumber Items button to trigger the renumbering process.
The results page will show how the items were renumbered.
