Managing content categories from Admin Console

Content categories are words or phrases an administrator provides for users to classify content in a place. Content categories can be specified for a place from the Admin Console or the user interface.

Fastpath: Admin Console > Spaces > Management > Categories Management

As a place administrator, you define categories in a way that's meaningful inside the particular place. As you create categories, think about how the place's content should be grouped. You can add up to 30 categories to a place.

Additionally, you can associate tags with categories. When a tag is associated with a category, someone who uses this tag to label content in the place sees the category name highlighted. This is a cue to consider assigning the content to the category.

By managing the list of categories, you can help ensure that content is organized in the best way for people using the place. Content categories are created and managed in the user interface or in the Admin Console.

Content categories differ from the place categories that are used to classify places. For more information about place categories, see Managing place categories.
