Plans can be categorised to allow easy filtering and searching of different types of plans.

All services start with a predefined base set of planning categories but you can edit and add your own categories. For example, you could change the predefined 'Goal' category to 'Aspirations', or you could add a completely new category called 'Parent aspirations'.

If you've set up rooms at your service, your service's category set is shared by all rooms (each room doesn't have it's own set). So when a room adds a new category or edits an existing category, these changes are reflected across all groups.
