In this short article, you will learn how to add related item categories to an item record. Frequently, we find our clients manually selecting each related item on the NetSuite item record. You can use this method to create "related item categories" and then assign the "related item category" to the item record. This will make it much easy when you are first setting up your website.
STEP 1: CREATE NEW RELATED ITEMS CATEGORY
If you are in a NetSuite "Administrator" role, you can navigate to COMMERCE > MARKETING > RELATED ITEMS CATEGORIES > NEW.
Then you will give your category a label and make sure to add a brief description before you start on the path to requiring tribal knowledge to manage your NetSuite account.
Under the "BASIC" tab, you can start adding items to this list.
Then click SAVE.
Note: You will notice in the list of all the "related items categories" that if you manually add related items to any particular item, it will create one of these categories here and label it with the item name.
STEP 2: Associate your related category to an item
Navigate to your item record.
You can add individual items to this list in addition to any related item categories you create. This will save you a lot of time in setting up and managing item data.
