Organization Categories are groups of similar Organizations. Using Organization Categories properly can help with your reports and business intelligence. You will also need Organization Categories in order to create Discounts.
For example, you may want to know how many elementary schools visited your venue last year. By creating and assigning an "Elementary School" Category to all of the elementary school Organizations, you can report on this without creating individual ticket types for elementary schools.
You cannot add an Organization to the Back Office without associating it with an Organization Category.
