        When will this feature be completed? It will be very helpful to us to be able to nest categories.

        When a systems contains tens of thousands of documents (as mine does) search will ALWAYS return more results than are useful. Often, you are not sure what words will occur in the document you are looking for, making search pointless. What you need is a way to browse. Browsing is best when there is a granular filing system based on folders/categories and sub-folders/categories. This does not have a negative impact on search but it does make finding a document much easier when you are not sure of the exact contents. I would find this feature extremely useful.

        Thanks Stephen. Can you point me towards more information on the sub-Select UDF?

        Hi, Has this feature been added to OpenDocMan? I am looking for a suitable DMS and the ability to create sub-categories/folders is a key requirement.

        hi there,

        are sub-categories will be also available on the community edition?
        I don't want to be anal but I found this http://www.opendocman.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=641&p=1667&hilit=sub+category#p1674 and it says "I am sure we will be working on this once 1.2.6 goes final." and you've already released 1.2.6.5 ...

        is this feature already on your development roadmap? if so, wha's the ETA?

        thanks!

        This feature is a must. Creating sub categories, so that files could be organised in more efficient way is far more important than multiple upload and fancy interface.
        Nevertheless, all of the options listed in the Uservoice are important so that project stays active.

        This would help users in searching for and storage of documents
