Board Categories

All the functions used in manipulations with the board categories are located on the left side of the window. If there are no categories created, the list contains only the "All" filter. You can switch between categories by pressing the left button of your mouse on their names.

Create Category

In order to create a category on the board, you should press Add category Add category, located under the list of categories. This button is visible for the users having appropriate access rights. These rights can be granted by the administrator of your TeamWox system. As soon as you press the button, the window shown in the screenshot below will appear:

Adding category

The following information should be specified here:

  • You should type the name of the category in the "Name" field.
  • You can specify a short description to the category in the "Description" field. It will be displayed as a pop-up help if you point the cursor of your mouse over the category name.
  • Permissions to view and administer this category are specified at the bottom of the window. You can assign or delete permissions using Add Add and Delete all. As soon as you press the "Add" button, the window of assigning user (groups) will appear. Usage instructions for that window are given in the Interface description -> List of Assigned section. In order to delete all the assigned users, you should press Delete all. If you want to delete only one user, then pressDelete located to the right of each selected user.
  • Once having performed all the actions described above, you should press the "Update" button. If you press the "Cancel" button, all the changes you made remain unsaved, and you will be returned to the previously visited window.
  • Users who have the administration permissions can edit (change name, description and permissions) and delete the category. Nevertheless the administration permission does not give the access to view topics in it. A user should have the "View" permission for it. Changes in the permissions settings are displayed in the system journal.
  • User that created a category has the default permissions to administrate it.

Edit Category

You can edit a category by pressing Edit, that appears to the right of the category name, if you put the cursor of your mouse over it (in case you have the appropriate access rights assigned by your administrator of TeamWox):

Editing/deleting category

The window of editing a category will appear, as soon as you press the button. It is just the same as adding a category described above. You can change the category name and the permissions to view and administer it, too.

Delete Category

You can delete a category by pressing Delete, that appears to the right of the category name, if you put the cursor of your mouse over it. The window asking you to confirm deleting will appear, as soon as you press the button:

Confirmind category deletion

In order to delete a category, you should press the "OK" button. If you want to cancel deleting, you should press the "Cancel" button.

The Delete button appears only, if there are no topics in the category. So, to delete the category, you should previously delete all the topics from it.
