On this page you can assign categories, i.e. topic-related groups, defined for the current site to the document.


If any categories are already assigned to the document, a list of these categories is displayed, together with a category status and the Remove selected and Add categories buttons. If no categories are assigned, only the latter button is displayed.


Assigning categories to the document


To add new categories to the document, you need to click the Add categories button and in the dialog window that pops up, select the categories from the Categories tree. Only categories allowed for the current site together with personal categories of the user are displayed. To save the changes, click OK.

Please note that the dialog window allows you not only to select categories but also perform standard categories editing tasks:

Categories can also be moved Up_UIElement Up and moved Down_UIElement Down in the Categories tree and the tree can be CategoryExpand Expanded and CategoryCollapse Collapsed.
