Document Library VS. Categories

  Asked By: Seth    Date: Feb 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2991

After migrating data over to SPS and navigating around it, I noticed that
the Document Library and Categories tab have pretty much the same content.
The only difference is that the document library shows all documents in the
documents directory. It even shows the folders. Is there anyway to hide the
folders from being shown on the dashboard?

I think it is pretty redundant, but I was also wondering if anyone had any
ideas on how these two tabs can be mutually beneficial.

There is some differences

Document Library is a physical directory  where the document  are stored.
Documents can be attached to multiple categories. You could potentially
modify the .xsl template to not show directories but you might break
some functionality
