A user with the List Admin permission can edit a document type by changing its name or description, linking it to a different document group, changing its retention period and role security, and employing clause management.  A List Admin can also disable a document type so that it is temporarily removed as an option when a user adds a document, or permanently delete it if it is no longer needed.
