You can also go via the settings page of the project. Click settings on the main left menu.

Manage Categories

On the database management page you will see that there are no records and items available. We will create our example entry in a next article. First we are going to determine which categories our database will have.

These categories are used to create list queries. You can always delete or add categories later but the best practice is to create them before the end-client is inputting new entries.

Click Manage Categories.

manage

As you can see our main category from the set-up is already available. We can add another main category or click the main category to add sub categories. We are going to do the latter.

categories

We add sub categories to the main category. In this example we added Online and Newsletters as two sub categories.

subcategories

(1) It's also possible to add new sub categories to these categories. Categories can go as deep as you want them to.

(2) You can also change the order of the categories by using the drag and drop handlers.

Return to the database management page when you are done.
