Adding Indexes

Adding Indexes to a category lets you add different ways to search the particular category. For example, adding a SamID index to a category would permit you to scan a document into that particular category, and prompt you to put in the User’s SamID. Thereafter, you could search within that category for the Index or SamID that you assigned.

  1. Select the category to which you would like to add an Index.
  2. Use the Indexes Available drop-down box to select the index you want.
  3. Determine whether the index should be required, and use the Required checkbox.
  4. Now use the > button to add the index to your category.
