How can I see which items don't have a category assigned?

Hello,

I'm doing some much needed inventory organising and noticed many items didn't have a category or tags assigned before publishing. 

This is obviously a huge issue as without categories, nobody can see the item unless they are searching for it.

Before I go and look through all 331 listings, is there a quicker way to do this?

Thanks!

The products can be seen on /shop page by default, have you check it?

Yes but I am unable to see which products don't have a category. So for example, if someone went to my 'Dresses' category, they would only see the items I marked as a 'dress' .. but some things may not have been given a category.

I emailed Squarespace Support directly about this and they said there was nothing else to do apart from go through my entire inventory and manually check, unfortunately.

The quickest way is to export your inventory to a CSV file. The file will include a categories column that lists each category for each product.

I hate using anything to do with Squarespace CSV

Imports can be tricky, but the export should work fine. 🙂
