Product Category Widget

Last updated 11.03.22

The Product Category widget is part of the Product Application. The product catalog application in total creates an interactive, non-e-commerce product catalog with multiple product categories.  
 
The Product Category widget automatically creates the product catalog navigation based on data in the Product Application. It lives on product page types and its appearance depends upon the transformation you select: list or accordion. Clicking on either list links or accordion links takes you to the main product categories. 

For this widget to function, there needs to be products added to the Product Application. The Product Application is a powerful database of product information that is easy to edit and manage in one place while automatically feeding data into widgets such as this one.
