There are a few things to be aware of when uploading Category covers:

  • The behaviour of the category-wide report cover is that it looks from the bottom and upwards.
  • This means if an individual report cover is assigned along with a category report cover, the individual cover will be applied to the report.
  • If a category cover is applied to a top-level category AND a sub-category, the sub-category cover will be applied.
  • If a report is assigned to two same-level categories and they both have category report covers, it will select the category that appears first in the category tree. The cover will be applied from that category. 
  • This will also apply to hidden categories.

4. By adding the cover, it immediately displays a preview. If required you can click Revert cover to take it back to its previous cover or to remove it.

5. Once you are happy with the cover, click Save to proceed. You will then be taken back to the display categories page.
