How do I create a new Support Center category structure in the Impact Dashboard?

You can create a new support center category structure.

The category structure contains a home level of categories of your Support Center. This is where you can view the big categories that contain multiple subcategory levels that control how your support center is organized. You can alter the visibility of each category and subcategory by assigning them to different user roles, contexts, and tool categories. To begin creating your structure, you need to create categories on your home level.
