About

Data Type: Bool
Accepted Values: true,false,1,0
Default value: true
Impacted Features: Report Design, Dashboard Design, Report List
Purpose: Removes the "New Category" option from the initial Save and Save As dialogue box.
Usage: This setting is used to disable new categories from being created by users. It can be set per user through security.
Caveats: If HiddenCategories are used for the current user and this setting is true, the user will be able to "create" a category with the same name as the hidden category and save reports to it, but these reports will be invisible once the user navigates back to the report list.
