  • Two Views, a Searchable List, and a Tree structure
  • 4 Ways to Save:  
    • Assign Categories to the Document
    • Save the Values to the Field
    • Both Save Values and Assign Categories to the Document
    • Save the Object Key and Category Key to a Joining Table
      • Both Custom Tables and Custom Modules supported
  • Reference Categories 3 ways:
