Remove product from category
Currently you can bulk add products to categories; but you cannot bulk remove a product from a single category. Ex: When creating temporary categories for sales you can add multiple products to the category but you cannot remove them in bulk from just one category.
There are currently two ways to bulk remove items from a category.
To do this, go to the category that you’d like to transfer products away from. While viewing the category’s details page, click on “Browse Products” to view only the products assigned to that category. (As an alternate, you can also go to products, product list and filter the view based on category)
Once you’re viewing all of the category’s products, click on the checkbox at the top left of the grid to select all products.
Then, using the batch action menu at the bottom of the grid, select “Move to Category” and select a different category or create a new temporary category to move the products to. This will remove the products from the first category in bulk and assign them to the other category. (Note do not select “Add to Category” in the Bulk Actions as this will place the items in both categories)
Additionally, if you’d like to remove the products from a category completely (and have them be unassigned to any categories), this can be done via CSV import by leaving the “categories” column blank.
