Editing, deleting and restoring Categories & Fields

You can edit Categories & Fields in the same way you would create them.

Go to Process Config > Categories: Records & Fields.

As an Admin you are able to make the following changes:

  • Edit/Add/Remove Categories
  • Edit/Add/Remove Fields
  • Change the Security access for Fields
  • Edit/Add/Remove Sub-Categories & Fields
  • Delete & Restore Categories & Fields
  • Use Preview mode to check you are happy with the access for each user role

It is also possible to configure Categories from the page they appear, using the Config icon on the right hand side. This may be useful if you are looking at an employee's profile and notice there are Fields missing.

Go to the Category you wish to edit > Config.

This will take you directly to the Edit section of the Config pages where you can Edit the Fields and Security and check the access using Preview mode.
