- Finances
- Education
- Presentation Backgrounds
- Presentations

Comment 1 andreas_k 2020-05-01 09:15:29 UTC
What's the difference between
- Business Correspondence
- Other Business Documents
- Personal Correspondence and Documents (very long title)

I would suggest to use the categories from https://extensions.libreoffice.org/templates

but as we have now only a view templates I suggest to simplyfy all the categories.

These categories are obsolete. But it might be the basis for your proposal, which is welcome.

Categories on the old extensions site are tags with multi-select option meaning you can place a template in many "categories". The internal feature works as a filter.
In detail:
+ Accounting, Budget, Invoice -> just a minor difference between the three; would ake "Accounting"
+ Book, E-book, Conference, Brochure / Pamphlet, Magazine -> all kind of "Publication"
+ Education, Academia, Science, Elementary/Secondary school panels -> would take "Education/Academia"
+ "Curriculum Vitae" and "Letter" are sensible topics too

In principle, extensions can use different tags and extend the categories (assuming this, not tested - would be relevant for the tight integration project @Yusuf). So better starts with not too many.
