Both students and educators can add tags to their own Community feed posts. This article shows how to use tags to better structure and organize posts in the Community Feed, and how to search posts by tag.
Add A Tag
- Click on Add a tag in the top right of a post.
- Type a keyword.
- Select from the dropdown if your tag already exists.
- Press enter to create a new tag.
- You can add as many tags as you want to a post.
Add A Tag With Hashtags
- When writing a post, include a # before the word you would like to be used as a tag.
- When saving, the tag(s) will automatically be added to the post.
- If the tag doesn't already exist, it will be created.
Search by Tags
To view the community feed filtered by tags, use the Filter by tag dropdow.
- Use clear, simple and self-explanatory tags. For example: for posts pertaining to week 1, week1 may be a more effective tag than part1 or 1.
- Use consistent tags. For example, if week1 has been used to categorize posts for week 1, use the same tag for all the other week 1 posts. For example, do not use firstweek or week-1 etc.
- Use multiple relevant tags for a single post. For example, if a post is relevant to both Group A and week 1 activities, it may be a good idea to add both groupA and week1 tags to the post.
- Only an educator can both add and remove tags from their own posts as well as others' posts.
- Once a tag has been added, it can be removed from any post but cannot be deleted altogether. After removing a tag from all posts in the Community feed, it will still be visible in the tags library.
- Tags cannot be followed.
- On the mobile app, it is possible to add tags via the # option when writing up a new post, however, it is not possible to add a tag to an existing post. This needs to be done from desktop.
