Sub-category Creation

Recommended Posts

As a category manager is there a way to create sub-categories within your own category? eg. I manage Canadian Benchmarks and I may like to create sub-categories called monuments, survey disks, and other types. The master category would not have any waymarks in it. All the waymarks would be in one of the sub-categories.

That raises the question of how much influence you, as a "container category" owner have over the creation of categories within the container.

Why not use category variables? As a category owner you can define category variables that must be filled in when a new waymark is recorded. In your case you can have a variable called "Benchmark Type" which can take one of the values: Monunument, Survey Disk, Other. If you want to add other variables you can (for example Control Type: Vertical or Horizontal).

I asked this question awhile ago. I was informed that ONLY Groundspeak owns container categories.
