If you have quite a lot of categories, you can prepare the CSV files and import it into Edocman system. You just need to enter 2 columns in CSV file
Owner ID (ID of Joomla user who own the category)

Following on from point 4 above, I updated one of our site's PDF files yesterday. When I went to check on it from the front end of the site, there is no longer a download icon beside it and when I click on the file name itself on the front end to try and download it, it's looking for a password. I don't need any of the files password protected, so I'm wondering do I need to upload/edit my files differently to prevent this password option appearing for our users?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
After importing categories as outlined in #9, I noticed none of the categories had aliases. How are those uploaded categories going to get them without having to go into the admin screen for each one and saving it?
