Create a Quick Defect Category at the Company Level


To create a quick defect list category at the Company level.


Categories are used to group your defect list item templates into sets. For example, you might want to organise specific templates into separate categories for ConcreteMasonryMetals, and so on. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' on the Company level Admin tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • Categories created at the company level are also visible and available in the project's Admin tool.
      Note: In the project's Admin tool, a key icon appears next to any categories that were created at the company level. 
    • Categories created at the project level are specific to that project. They are NOT visible or available in the company's Admin tool. See Create a Quick Defect Category on a Project.
    • You can also add a defect list template at the project level. See Create a Project Level Defect Item Template
