How to Rename an Object Type

Some of the Object Types can be renamed.

To do this, go to Menu (top left corner) and click on "Show/Hide Toolbox". This opens your “Toolbox” window.
* You can also access your Toolbox by pressing the space bar on your keyboard.

In the Toolbox window go to the Settings tab (top right icon) and choose “Server Setup” from the drop down menu in the bottom. Scroll to the bottom of these settings until you find “Rename Object Types”.

Then, click on the User or Object Type that you wish to rename, and type the new name in the window that opens up.

If you don't want to use all the categories, just leave the field name empty for those that you don't need (e.g. if you decide to use only "Staff" for Users)

Keep in mind that we will also classify Objects using Object Classes, so we will not need as many Object types in many cases.
(e.g. We can use only "Staff" as an Object Type for all our Users. And as many object classes as we need to classify our staff: "Producers", "Editors", "Compositors" etc).
