All items in Zoho Commerce are created as item groups. When integrated with Zoho Inventory, these items are synced into the item groups module. The same item group actions are applicable where you can remove or move a variant from one group to another.
To remove or move a variant from one group to another in Zoho Inventory:
Go to the Items > Item Groups module on the left navigation pane.
Click on an item group name to view its details.
Under associated items, click on the item that you want to remove/move from the group.
In this page, click the More dropdown and select Remove from group or Move to another group.
Select the destination group, and fill in the attribute information for that group, if any.
- If an item is moved from one group to another, it loses its former group attributes and acquires the attributes of the current group.
- Also, if an item is moved to a group with no attributes, then it won’t be displayed in your Zoho Commerce store.
