Invoice being an inevitable document type in WooCommerce is always in need of customizing to suit varied needs. Even though the plugin provides inbuilt standard templates that can be used for invoices, the store owner may want to have it altered in their own manner.

You can see that the default product table order is Product Image, SKU, Product, Quantity, Price, Total Price.

How can I ADD a custom product_category additional column to the product list and sort product list table by Category?

You can enable group by category option from Invoice settings. In the 4.1.3 version of the plugin, we have added sort by sku and product name option too.
