Changing the content type

You can change an items content type from its default to a more specific value.
You can only change the content type if your Alfresco administrator has configured content type properties so that you can enhance an item by giving it a type (for example, changing a standard document to a policy document)
  1. Click on an item in the library to view it in the Document Details page.
  2. In the Document Actions list click Change Type.

    The Change Type dialog box appears.

  3. Select the required type.

    Note: The New Type list is empty until types are defined by an Alfresco administrator.
  4. Click OK.

    When you give an item a type property it is shown on both the Document Details page and the Edit Properties page for the item.
