Follow taxonomies

Users can follow taxonomies. This will then trigger notifications for them every time an entity that is tagged with the followed taxonomy is added. CM+s can place a block on Dashboards from which users can see all content connected to a Taxonomy and follow it.

 

Within Content

Once you add content tags to your platform, you are able to add them to the content items you wish. Once a content piece liek topic was created with a tag, you can save it and the tag will be displayed on the right side of the screen.

You then have the ability to press on the tag(s) and either follow or see related content, which will redirect you to the search page with the proper filters. When there is a star next to the tag, it means you already follow it, and have the option to unfollow it.

Tag on DB

As shown in the image above, it also showcases how often a content was tagged with this specific one and how many followers the specific tag has. 

 

Notifications & Stream

Once a user follows a tag, they receive a notification via the platform and via email. Once they click on it, it will redirect them to the content that was created with this tag. 

 If something is created within a group a user is not a member of,  they will only be able to see the content (if the group visbibilty options allow it), and the content appears on the community stream of the platform and on their profile stream.
