You use this function if you want to add a completely new merchandise category to the goods on offer in a shop.
If the theme of this merchandise category is relevant to other shops as well, you must assign it to several shops that usually belong to the same category.
When you create a new shop, the system transfers the merchandise category assignments from the optional reference shop, so that you do not need to manually assign merchandise categories. However, in some specific cases you may have to add other merchandise categories. You can use the Mass Maintenance of Merchandise Category/Sites function to assign a number of merchandise categories to a number of sites. To combine sites that are to contain the new merchandise category you can use the following selection procedures:
· Select individual sites
· Select sites from a distribution chain
· Select sites from a site group
· Select sites (shops) from a category
On the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Logistics ® Retailing ® Master Data ® Merchandise Category Data ® Environment ® Mass Maintenance Category/Sites.
