UVdesk - How to add a Category?

What is a Category?

Categories refer to the information for a specific topic and these categories will contain articles in it. A knowledge base normally contains folders which have a number of categories and articles in it.

With helpdesk, the owner can make sure that the customers always have a right insight by sharing knowledge with them.

The support agents if they have a privilege can add and organize solution articles as folders within the support portal so that your customers can quickly browse through them in their self-service portal.
