Click on the Select Square Category dropdown there you'll see a list of all your categories from your Square account. Making it easier to create categories and have data related to orders and categories sync to your Square.

When you're ready to create your category, click create a category. From there you'll be directed to choose an icon for your category. There are multiple category icon families that you are able to choose from so that you are able to find one that fits your brand the most. The icon you select will be shown to your customer's in your OAL app and can be changed at any time. We're also always adding more icons. It's best to choose icons from the same family for a menu, so that your app has cohesion and looks coherent, however, you're free to choose as you please.

To select an icon, click on the icon and a confirmation module will appear. Confirm your selection to set the icon for the category.
