In the resulting modal, enter a name for the category or sub-category you wish to create in the designated fields.

Click on “Apply” to save the changes.

  • To create a new sub-category for an existing category, you must enter the name of the existing category in the “Category” field. 
  • You can use the method shown above to move documents from one category to another.

Searching and Filtering

The search bar at the top of the page will allow you to search for documents that are in your Compliance Obligation Registers.

Please note: The search is case-sensitive. In some cases, users will find their documents quicker by searching for specific words in the title, instead of the full title.

You can search by keyword to find all the documents that contain this specific word in their title, or in their text.

You can also use a document’s Leg. Ref. to search for it. However, the Leg. Ref. must be entered exactly as it would appear in the reference column on the Library Page. For example: If a Leg. Ref. appears as SC2010.c.23, in the Reference Column, entering “SC-2010 c 23”, will not work.

You can also sort and filter your documents by specific column values. To do so, simply click on the column heading, and use the resulting menu to sort or filter as desired. 

Please note: you can filter by multiple system fields, but you can only filter by one custom field at a time.
