Categorization of scheduled jobs in DSM

We have several jobs defined in DSM 2.1.4, but we'd like the ability to group them by category. By comparison, in Task Center in DB2 V9.7, the jobs could be defined/grouped by a category. To give a simple example, we could have a group of jobs defined as "Weekly Jobs" and another for "Monthly Jobs" and another for "Annual Jobs" and viewing these jobs would should these jobs grouped by this category. DSM seems to have a category field in the job definition, but it doesn't seem to allow us to view jobs so that they are organized by this category.
