The document type tells you what the document represents. A document type could be compared to a folder. Suppose you have documents that are employment contracts, the document type of these documents could then be "Employment contracts".

For example, when you create a signature invitation that is an employment contract in your Visma Sign account, you would select "Employment contracts" as the document's type. If no document types have been created yet, then only "Unclassified document" can be selected as the document type.

The document type also serves as the basis for the access rights that determine who can see the documents in the account. You can read more about user groups here.
