About Creating Product Catalogs for the eSamples Page

Catalogs are used in the Physician Portal to display products that can be ordered using the eSamples page.

A catalog is a collection of items arranged in a logical hierarchy of categories. A schematic of a product catalog is shown in Figure 1.

  • Categories can contain content items and other categories (called subcategories).
