Product Groups are a bit like folders for your products. You can filter by product group in Resources > Products and in the picker on an opportunity. When you add products to an opportunity, they’re added in groups based on their product groups.
There’s no limit on the number of product groups you can create, but it’s a good idea not to create too many and keep them high-level.
For further searching and sorting, you can always tag your products.
Add new product groups
When creating a product

While importing products
If you’re importing products, simply enter any new product groups you wish to create in the “Product Group” column heading. The import tool will create any product groups that don’t exist.
