Document Categories

Categories in Web Manuals give structure to your documents, they create an easy way to navigate and access your documents. 

What is a document category? 

A category in WM is similar to a folder, but categories have higher functionality. 

It is also through the categories we give users access to different documents. If you have some documents located in a category, a user must have access to the category in order to have access to the documents. A manual can be located in more than one category if needed.

Categories are listed in alphabetical order and arranged in main and sub-categories. The number next to each category indicates the number of documents present inside the category.
