Editing, Disabling, and Deleting Document Type Groups

A document group can easily be edited if your company changes the name of the document category or changes its description or function. A document group can also be temporarily disabled if it will be needed again in the future, or permanently deleted if your company no longer wishes to track this type of document.

 If you delete a Document Type Group, you not only delete the group, but all the Document Types in that group. If you want to keep one or more of the Document Types in a document group that is to be deleted, simply assign the Document Type to a new Document Type Group before deleting the group.
