Utilizing Categories

Roles: Members, Authors, Admins


Tags greatly enhance searching for information in Guru, but as your content grows in size, you'll need a way to organize your Tags. That's where Categories come in! Learn how to use Categories to group and differentiate Tags.

How to Create a Category

  1. Navigate to the Tag Manager, found in left navigation bar of the web app (app.getguru.com). As a reminder, only Authors can access the Tag Manager. From there, you can choose which Collection you'd like to work in, if you have access to more than one.
  2. You will see your ungrouped Tags on the left side of the Tag Manager under 'Add a Tag'. On the right are Categories and categorized Tags.
  3. To add a Category, enter the desired name into the 'Add a Category' field and press enter. You can always edit the name of the Category by hovering over it and clicking the pencil icon.
  4. There are three ways to add a Tag to a Category:
  • Drag the Tag from the left side of Tag Manager into the Category in which you would like it. Tags can only exist in one Category. Thus, they are a great way to differentiate Tags of the same name that pertain to separate subjects. For example, 'FAQ' is a common Tag name. Placing them in Categories called 'Product 1' and 'Product 2' ensures that they won't be confused with each other.
  • Click on the Tag to open up the Tag Settings. Here, you can edit the Tag's name as well as assign it to a Category.
  • Finally, you can automatically add a net new Tag within a Category by clicking 'Add a Tag' in the Category field.
  • Categories allow you to visually assess the organization of your Tags, so continue adding and reworking Tags and Categories to best suit your team!
