When any document in the specified category is saved then it will be used as the new thumbnail for the record. This is perfect for Student Records or Personnel Records where you define a category named Photo and set that at the Thumbnail Category. Then any new picture of the Student/Personnel that gets saved in that Category will cause the Record thumbnail to be updated to their new photo.
