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 from the top drop-down menu, 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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
