Idea categories is a tool you can use to conveniently organize your Ideas. You can create new categories to assign Ideas to. For example, if your team builds websites, you can create categories such as: front-end, back-end, design, etc. Assigning Ideas to categories allows you and your team to organize thoughts more easily.
A category can be selected either when the Idea is created or after in the 'Manage Categories' tab. However, if no category has been selected when an Idea is created, it will remain in the general category, which is created by default.
In free Projects and Teams, every member has access to the "Manage Categories" tab, but in Premium Projects and Teams, Admin(s) can assign permissions which allow only certain members access.
To manage categories, click on the button as shown below:

Note: if a category is deleted all the Ideas associated with it will be placed under the "general" category.
