What are categories and how can I create a category?

Follow

Overview & background


Typically categories are defined by trade but can be customizable to suit your project. Throughout the duration of your project, categories can be added and adjusted by Project Admins. Categories can be added on both web and mobile, either on the project dashboard or through a task.

Tip: When you create a new project, there is an option to clone categories from an existing project. This is a great way to avoid setting up your categories from scratch each time you create a new Fieldwire project. You will also have the option to import the default Fieldwire categories.
 

Default Fieldwire Categories

 
When you create a new project, you have the option to use Fieldwire's default categories.

Add Categories on Web

You are also able to Edit or delete a category by selecting the gear icon to the right of the category. Similarly, you can add other categories to your project by selecting the '+ New Category' option at the bottom of the categories list.

Add a Category from a Task 

You can also add a category directly from the Task attributes category section. This can be helpful if you have created a new task that does not fit in an existing category.
