Hi Hermant,


Just go to the imCategory form designer (type fd in the SM command line and then search for imCategory form). Click on design button, then just select the "Link new subcategories" button.


Into the properties tab, you are going to see in the "Enable Condition" a value like: [share_flag=1], just edit it and put true instead of that condition.


Click on Ok and Ok again and then test.


Best regards,

Make sure the logged in user has Service Desk Configuration and Incident Management Configuration rights as part of their Security Role(s).


The ability to modify the classification values is dependent on the module configuration rights.
