What are document types?

Document types can be used to categorise your documents and assign different kinds of shared properties to them.

Document types can be used for a number of purposes, depending on the shared properties they include. For example:

  • The User Selection property allows you to assign documents to a specific user on your workspace. This could be used to assign marking to teachers, or exercises to students.
  • The Date property allows you to add dates to documents. This could be used to record the date that the document was uploaded, or to record deadlines for assignments.
  • The Number and Text properties can be used to attach numbers and text as properties of the document. These could be used to add serial numbers or codes to documents.
