SharePoint Categories

Hi Guys,

I am a new bee to SharePoint. I have recently been given the chance to manage a On-Prem SharePoint 2016 infrastructure. I need to add a "Category" like how it is shown below.

Can anyone help me understand what these Categories are and how do I add one and place it between HR and Btec level1 Categories?


Regards,
Neville

Hi @nevilleadmin,

These categories are not added manually, when we use grouping to modify a SharePoint view, it will group by the specified column and show as categories.

Take a newly created list as an example:

Then modified the view> scroll down and expand Group By> choose the "Test" field then click OK.

The grouped view will show the view based on values in test column:

For your requirement, we could add a new value in the column then it will group it by the new value.

Thanks @Julie Wang-MSFT for this reply. I have now understood how to create this view but I am still trying to understand how to add another group called Category:Safeguarding between Category:HR and Category:Btec - level1

Hi @nevilleadmin,

In order to get a better forum experience, we changed your answer to a comment.

Per my knowledge, the value order is based on A-Z.

We cannot specify the order of group category.

What I mean is where do I add the text for the group names like HR or Safeguading? How do I add a new grouping?

Can you tell me the exact menu or step by step please? Which place will I find this Category Column? I cant see the groupings names in the Modify view? Where exactly is the name of these categories?
