When Therefore is in production and we need to update configuration of categories, we have two options:
Create new category from first one and modify this one
Modify category in live and we take the risk with users to have troubles.
If we create new category, when we want to pass the new one in production we have again two choice :
Block user for minimum half day, modify the old category with the dev category.
There is high risk to forget some fields or configuration and do mistake.
Ask user to use the new category for new document and old one only for read.
What happen with running workflow, need to use multicategory search if we don't know the date of document.
It would be great to be able to modify existing category and do versionning on as we have on workflow.
As admin we could access in navigator to category in developpement, save new document out of prod category, start workflow out of prod workflow etc.
I think it could help admin really much to implement therefore solution if we could have another way to upgrade client configuration.
