How do I differentiate between I, II, III, and VI functions for Minor 7th Chords in Jazz?

I am learning improvisation techniques in jazz music. I came across a page telling me lists of scales I can use on different chords. There are four types of plan Minor 7th chords listed: Tonic (I), Supertonic(II), III, and VI. I understand that II, III, and VI are the places in the major scale that have minor seventh chords, but I don’t understand how I decide if my minor seventh is a I, II, III, or VI.

    Sure you can do that…but ben, where’s your profile’s photo?
    I think we have only the III and VI degree to get the best sounds for Minor 7th chords..so what do you think?
