    In this example, as a top administrator for categorized content, you will associate an already defined content data source with this top folder in categorized content.

Every subfolder on the source becomes a new subfolder beneath the current folder if the subfolder doesn’t already exist. If you don’t select this check box, only the content that resides directly at the root of the source path is processed.


    Click the Auto Expand Folder option.

    Step 8
