Categories

Stelace provides hierarchical asset categories out of the box if needed.

Categories and subcategories are both a convenient way to organize your assets and a power filter to use in search.

Asset type and category

Categories are a descriptive and universal way to organize your assets for your end-users, while asset types internally regroup your assets by business requirements.

Combine both of them to leverage your inventory in search with higher flexibility.

On a marketplace offering cars to rent, you may introduce SUV, Compact, Sedan, Hatchback, Coupe categories. “Hourly rental” and “Lease” could be appropriate asset types for a car depending on owner’s choice.
