How to Inline edit WooCommerce category/tag in Woocommerce bulk product editing plugin?

Inline edit WooCommerce category vs tag in Woocommerce bulk product editing plugin can help you to add or remove any category or tag, to/from a product directly in the product table.

We are going to show you how to Inline edit category / tag in our plugin in three simple steps:

Step 1: Add category / tag columns

To have access to the category/tag in the product table, you need to add these columns to be displayed in the table.

As we completely discussed in “How to add columns to Woocommerce bulk product editing plugin”, adding new columns in the product table is possible by using column profile form. 

To see the column profile form, you need to click on the “Column Profile” button at the main page of our plugin. Then, you can mark those columns related to the “categories” and “tags” as shown below:

Step 2: Search product

You can use the “Quick Search” option to find the right product that you need to inline edit its category/tag. By using this field, you can quickly find your preferred profile by searching either “Title” or “ID” of the product.

For example, we searched for a product with “ID No: 32”  And it was filtered as below:
