The Categories node contains all the categories defined in the K2 environment and will list the K2 artifacts such as SmartObjects , Views, Forms and Workflows that exist in the categories within the Categories system. Click on a Category to see the Views, Forms, SmartObjects and Workflows. From here you can perform several of tasks for Views, Forms, SmartObjects and Workflows. In each category folder, an administrator can rename, move, view and edit. The security administrators role can apply Category Authorization to category folders. For more information, see the Authorization Overview topic.

Only workflows that were created in the browser-based designers such as K2 Designer will appear in the Categories system. If your Categories node is empty, you have not been granted rights to the child nodes. See Category Authorization for more information.
