Organizing Resources

Tags provide a way to group and organize discussions, files, links, and videos using key words to help your community members easily find the content they need. It is recommended that you create tags before launching the community to begin organizing the content. Adding multiple tags to a discussion, file, link, or video provides multiple ways for community members to find the content they want.

Step 1: Create a Tag

Create a "tag" so members can quickly find your resources.

Step 2: Name the Tag

Name the "tag".

Step 3: Tag Discussion

Assign the discussion with your created tag.

Step 4: Accessing Tags

Test your newly developed tag by seeing what resources are taged.
