Originally, there was no option to filter products by category in the default Magento 2 product grid. This is quite inconvenient when you want to search or update some of your specific products. Probably it’s not a big deal when you just manage a small-scale store, but what if it increases to hundreds or even thousands of products? Too overwhelming, right?
But, don’t worry. You’re not alone in this challenging task. Many of our customers have been suffering from this “no filter products by category” of the default Magento backend. However, they have now completely overcome this issue by utilizing our Admin Product Grid with Category extension.
One of our customers, Kristie J. Wheeler, expressed:
“Magento 2 Custom Admin Grid for Category sets me free from taking hours to manage huge inventory in my clothing stores cause I easily sort products by category right in the admin grid.”
Previously, whenever sale season came, Kristie Wheeler had to cope with the overload category of products on her ecommerce website. She had to switch back and forth between the storefront and the backend to ensure that all products were assigned to the appropriate categories so that online customers could easily find and purchase them. Thus, this situation gets on her nerves and also suffers her store’s profit in many ways.
“Why does Magento 2 lack admin product filter by category?” - Kristie felt daunting when emailing us. “Just wish there were a simple way to check which categories items belong to.”
However, her pain is no longer exists. Our Magento product grid category extension holistically eliminated her Magento website’s drawback!

When it comes to managing products on the Magento backend, this Magento 2 Custom Admin Grid for Category extension supports a pack of must-have features as follows:
By default, the admin impossibly uses the category ID attribute as a filter option in the product grid. Making up for this limitation, our Magento 2 Admin Product Grid with Category extension broadens the product grid by adding Category and Category ID columns.
The columns appear beside each product and perform all the product categories. Getting a filtered product collection by category and your managing process will no longer be a time-consuming task!
Arrange the additional column and sort it by its value
