Note: The description field is optional and is only visible from the Library administration.

3. Define if the newly created class is the default class of the library. 
Notes: 
- From the Google Drive interface, any new document created will be assigned the default document class.
- From the AODocs interface, if you have multiple document classes, you have to select the document class of your document at its creation.

4. If you need to remove a document class from a library, click on “Delete”.
Important: You cannot delete a document class that contains documents. To delete the class you need to delete all the documents of this class and then delete these documents from the AODocs trash from the AODocs library administration > Deleted documents.

5. You can create a view in one click from the document class configuration. The simple view always contains the columns Title, Last update and Last update author.
