Article Summary

Categories help you establish a more granular organization of the packages you deploy to users.
In order for a category to be displayed on the user's device, you must first assign the packages within the category to that user. Moreover, based on the way you set up a package, the category is displayed in Workspace tab, Catalog tab or both.
To view which categories does an app belong to, go to Manage > Workspace > Packages > open the app you need and go to Catalog > Categories.

Overview screen

Displays the same information as in the Create category dialog box you used when you created the category, as well as the Description field which allows you to write a relevant summary of the category.

Packages screen

View a list of all packages currently assigned, assign new or remove existing ones.
To view the details of a package or edit it, double click its entry.
To add a package, simply start typing in the lookup field for the desired package and select it from the results lists.

For more information see Packages.
