When there are a larger number of groups in Jiglu it may be useful to categorise them for informational and searching purposes.
For example, if your organisation has different security access levels for different kinds of information you may want to have this shown on groups so administrators are less likely to make mistakes when granting access. You might also want to indicate what kind of information a group contains so users know whether it is likely to be of interest to them.
To add or edit group categories, go to System settings and then choose the Categories option under Groups. Here you can add, edit or delete categories.
Assigning categories to an existing group can be done in two ways:
- In the group, choose Settings and then the General option. You can now select those categories that are appropriate for the group.
- From the Blogs, Monitors, or Spaces indexes, select the dropdown menu next to the group name and then choose the Edit group option. You can now select those categories that are appropriate for the group.
When categories are present, the Blogs, Monitors, or Spaces indexes have an additional search filter that lets you search for groups that have been assigned to the chosen category.
