As an Administrator, you can change the order of your categories and sub categories.

The order the categories and sub categories appear in the Categories' page is the order they appear to the user when they are selecting a worker role or a business category in a workflow. 

To change the order of a category, simply find it in the Categories' page, grab it with your mouse, and then drag it to the required position.

For a sub category, go to the Categories' page and click on the Settings' icon against the relevant category. When the panel for that category opens, you can then move the sub category by grabbing it with your mouse and then dragging it to the required position. More information is provided below.

To change the order of your categories, please follow these steps:

  1. Log in as an Administrator.

  4. Choose the required category type to configure - Worker Roles or Supplier Categories.



  5. Go to the category that contains the sub category you want to change.
