Inherit category attribute groups from parent category

Hi all,

I would like to know a functionality in the category hierarchy, once we create a retail category, we will add the category nodes depending on the requirement. While doing that i came across the flag under the category attribute group, which is

What is the use of this highlighted flag? Can anyone one of you let me know? Thanks

If the parent nodes have the category attribute groups attached to it, by selecting this they will be inherited to the respective category. You have category2 under category1 and category1 has attribute groups attached to it. By selecting this the groups attached to category1 will be shown for category2 as well. You can test it with multi category nodes.

Thanks for the reply. I will test it .
