To create a new category, navigate to Lists > Inventory Categories, and click + Add Category:

Enter the name of the category, and click Save. Now that your category is created, you can create a sub-category and add it to your new category, making it a "parent" category. To create a sub-category, click the ellipsis button to the far-right of your parent company and click Add Sub-Category:
