🚨 When appointing a group of users or a user as Category Manager, a notion of inheritance applies automatically: this means that this status will automatically be passed on to the child categories located within the parent category. It will be possible to break this notion of inheritance by removing this status within the corresponding sub-category.

To remove the Category Manager status from a user, we can select the user in this same window and click on « Remove Manager Status ».
