A Document Type Group represents a logical grouping of Document Types in the database.
Document Type Groups allow the system to organize, search for, and locate a document more efficiently.
Document Type Groups also provide a means of applying customized archival and security characteristics to a group of Document Types. For example, certain User Groups can be restricted from accessing a group of Document Types by configuring specific user group characteristics. Other characteristics can be configured to restrict the method of retrieval available to the Document Type, for example, from the connected database or a third-party system.
Document Type Groups contain Document Types that have common characteristics. For example, the Document Types of Health Records and Insurance Documents could be grouped together under the Document Type Group of Patient Information.
