Using categories for pages

The Pages overview provides users with an overview of your platform's pages. Users can search and filter to find specific pages.

Additionally, if you label pages with categories, your users can filter by these. The category filter option is designed to help users quickly locate relevant information. You need the "Manage categories" permission for pages to manage categories.

The most commonly used categories are typically based on company areas, such as department, location, or business units, or functionalities such as help and news.
