Creating and Managing Microapp Categories


Categories allow you to manage and group your microapps in the Tiled Hub. By default, new microapps are classified as Uncategorized. Microapps can be assigned to one or more categories. This feature is enabled, by default, for all users with an Admin or Editor role. 

To create or manage your categories, you must open the Edit Categories page by clicking the Category icon on the Tiled Library page. When you are finished modifying your categories, click the Done Editing button. 



When users create a category, they provide a name for it. Once created, Tiled automatically designates a color to the category. On the Edit Categories page, each microapp displays colors in the microapp icon identifying which categories they are assigned to. 

Creating a category

To create a category from the Edit Categories page, click the New Category button.   


Type the category name in the field, and click the Check button. The category is added to the Edit Categories page and is designated a color. 

Adding a microapp to a category

To add a microapp to a specific category, click on the desired microapp icon and drag it to the desired category. Once assigned, the color(s) of the category it is assigned to is displayed in the microapp icon. 


Removing a microapp from a category

To remove a microapp from a category it has already been assigned to, click the desired category to edit it.


Click the X button to the right of the microapp name. The microapp is removed from the category. If not part of any category, the microapp returns to the Uncategorized category. 

Editing category names

To edit the name of a category, first click the category to edit it. Click the category name and edit the name as desired. Then click the Check icon when finished. 

Deleting microapp categories

To delete the category, first click the category to edit it. Then, click the Delete Category button. 


Click OK on the confirmation window. The category is removed from the Microapp library. 

Note:  Tiled allows you to delete categories even when microapps are assigned to it. If one or more microapps are only assigned to the category being deleted, they are then classified as Uncategorized.
