Browse & Search Category Editor

This page is used to associate Users with one or more Categories, as used on the search page.

The category editor is accessible to:

  • Content Manager, who can modify all categories and users. Access from Users tab on the Content Manager dashboard. Use the Update Browse & Search Categories link under Other Tools.
  • Group Administrator, who can modify it based on users in their group. (This site is not configured to permit this feature.)
  • Users, who can add or remove themselves from different categories. Access from your Profile page.

The result is that the Peer will be included in that category on the search page. The Peer will also be listed in categories which are "parents" of the selected category. For example, let's say you have a "Marketing" category, which contains "Branding" and "Market Research" as subcategories. Peers who are selected only for "Branding" will be automatically included in the "Marketing" category. There is no need to select parent categories.

If authorized, you can use the editor by choosing to select the category ("Choose by Category") and then selecting one or more Peers to be associated with that category. Alternatively, you can choose to select the Peer ("Choose by Peer") and then select one or more categories to be associated with that Peer.

When choosing by Category, you can filter the presented Peers by a particular group. Start typing the name of the group and select from the provided list. Press Clear to remove the filter.

Filter by group

When choosing by Peer, you can search the tree of Categories by typing in the "Search category tree" field, immediately above the tree on the right.
