Company documents are organized by Company Document Types. Company document Types can be configured by users who have the Admin role from the CONFIGURATION sections of the application. To get to this section, go to Process Config > Company Documents Types and Security

Examples of Company Document Types are: "HR Policies", "Employee Benefits"...etc

When you first set up Appogee HR a number of default Company Document Types are created. These may or may not be appropriate for your organization, so you can edit, delete or add to them as required.
