If you would like to distinguish your custom queues from the default ILLiad queues or sort the default queues into custom categories, you can create a new category to display those queues in the Requests Group.
For instance, in the Borrowing module, you can create a category called Custom Sort Queues, for your custom queues. When a request is moved to one of your custom queues, it will automatically display under the Custom Sort Queue category. When there are no requests within the queues under your category, the category will not display; when requests are added to those queues the category will display on the Client interface. Customizations are automatically saved for individual users, and can also be saved to a file, shared, and adapted by other users.

Editing and Reordering Categories
Once the new category is created, individual queues can be added or removed by simply clicking and dragging them into or out of that category within the list of queues. You can reorder the categories themselves by clicking and dragging the name of a category above or below other categories in the list. You cannot rename the category after it is created.
Deleting a Category
Once created, an individual category cannot be renamed or deleted without resetting the entire list of queues and categories within that tab in the ILLiad Client to the default view. To reset the tab to the default view:
