Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Services Center

SAP SuccessFactors Ask HR

If you assign the category name "Others" to any other category type such as "Activity", this will not be shown in the Ask HR UI (meaning whenever a user decides to use it in the Ask HR UI, they can either change its category type to Process or Incident):
