Topics allow you to categorize content. Similar to hashtags on social media, you can cadd topics to your content and feed posts. Then users will be able to click into or follow that topic to see relevant content tagged with the same topic across the intranet. Topics are also searchable. It is up to the App manager to manage topics on a recurring basis to ensure the list isn't getting overpopulated with non-productive Topics.
Users can add Topics to content and feed posts to group the same type of content together. Topics are also searchable. Simpplr's current topic selection only supports English.
As the App manager, you can see all the topics on the Manage > Topics page.
You can click Add topic to add new topics and click on the drop-down arrow next to the existing topic to follow/edit/delete/merge that topic.
Duplicate topics will be added to the list if users create them. However, when clicking into the topic or attaching it to content, it will be recognized the same as the existing topic. For example, if one user enters "401K" as a topic, then later another user enters "401 K", Simpplr will recognize this as a duplicate entry and only show content tagged with the original input topic, since "401K" already exists.
Add topics to content
Users and managers can add topics to content in the content creation flow. You can search through all topics in the topics list. In addition to the Topics bar as shown above, users can also use # followed by the word or phrase directly in their content or feed post. This will auto-search for existing topics, and if there's not one to choose from already, a new Topic will be created.
Note:The maximum number of topics you can add to any one piece of content is 100.
Users can follow topics as well. By following a topic, you'll ensure that any content tagged with that topic that you have visibility into will be sent to your feed. To follow a topic, simply click the topic from the content you're viewing, then click Follow.
