OpenLog - Feature Request: Add db categories to log entries

Add the database categories to log documents. In this way, users can group log entries together based on common database categories. This is useful when dealing with multi-db applications, a db that runs on multiple servers that share a replicated OpenLog db, as an easy way to separate the critical dbs from the rest. Dbs can also be categtorized by department, the development group responsible (for orgs with decentralized IT), etc.

Changes needed to OpenLogFunctions script library's LogItem class:
Add {Public categories as Variant} to the properties
Add {categories = Fulltrim(Split(session.CurrentDatabase.Categories, ","))} to Sub New
Add {logDoc.LogCategories = categories} to CreateLogDoc

Other items that would need to be changed:
- OpenLogClass script library to match
- A new multi-value text field called LogCategories to the LogEvent form
- At least one new view that categorizes by LogCategories.
- Possibly a change in the NotificationProfile form and NotificationFunctions script library to be able to use database categories as a notification criteria.

In this field you can enter the actual request.

You can use the rich text editor for rich text formating. You can also enter HTML to embed objects, e.g. to embed a YouTube video or a screenshot of the project. In this case use '[' and ']' to mark the passthrough HTML as such.

Please note that the first time you use the new UI your description is converted from rich text to MIME. You might want to copy and paste the raw plain text from the old UI in the new UI so that you don't loose information.
