Nested Game Categories

You are here:
< All Topics

The first step in creating Nested Game categories is to come up with the structure you want, so something as follows:

  • Main Category 1
    • Subcategory 1
    • Subcategory 2
  • Main Category 2
    • Subcategory 3
    • Subcategory 4

Once you have that mapped out, the next step would be to create all of the Subcategories first so they are ready to go (you’ll obviously want to rename them to something more obvious than “Sub Category 1”, etc. Go through the usual process of adding games as necessary and as found in this article: https://synthesisvr.com/knowledge-base/creating-and-assigning-game-categories/

Next you’ll need to create your top level Categories and within those Categories, you’ll add in the appropriate nested Game Categories at the bottom.

Once you have your top level Categories and your Subcategories set up, it should look something similar to this:

Next would be adding those to the Work Rules as per the instructions found here: https://synthesisvr.com/knowledge-base/creating-and-assigning-game-categories/ but with some slight variation. When setting up the order you want your categories to appear, the following has to be kept in mind. All game categories (both top level and nested) need to be added to the Games tab.

The order needs to be: Main Category first followed by the Subcategories you want to appear underneath it. If you place a Subcategory either before a Top Level Category it’s supposed to be in (or following a Top Level Category it’s not in), then that Subcategory will show up on the top level vs nested inside of a Top Level Category.

Another consideration when creating Nested Game Categories is you can got multiple levels of nesting, it doesn’t have to be just 2 levels, a top level and a sub level. So you could have (for example), the following:

  • Main Category 1
    • Subcategory 1
      • Sub Subcategory 1
      • Sub Subcategory 2
    • Subcategory 2
      • Sub Subcategory 3
      • Sub Subcategory 4
  • Main Category 2
    • Subcategory 3
    • Subcategory 4

The only real limitation is how complicated or deep you want it to be. Although, of course, you want to keep it simple and direct for your customers, but it’s important to understand the extremes this could be taken to.
