  2. Make your changes in the pop-up window:
    • To remove a category: Select the X button.
    • To add a category: In the pop-up window, search or navigate to find the category that you want to add. Your selections will appear on the right side of the pop-up window.


    • When you finish making changes, select the Done button (at the bottom of the pop-up window).

Tagging sub-categoires

Tagging a question that includes a sub-category does not automatically tag the question to the super-categories above it.

If a question needs to be tagged to a super-category, the admin will need to tag the question within the super-category structure.

    The main area of the page displays your most recently revised questions.

  2. If needed, search or select a folder (on the left side of the screen) to find the questions that you want to tag.
  3. To see the currently assigned categories (if any), select the Add Columns button, and then select Categories


  4. In the table, select the checkbox for each question that you want to tag with the same category or categories.
  5. At the bottom of the screen, select Questions Bulk Edit Options.


  6. In the dropdown menu, select Change Category Assignments.


  7. Select the Add Categories button, and then make your selections in the pop-up window.
    • To see the sub-categories, select the plus icon.
    • To select a category, select the checkbox.
    • When you finish selecting categories, scroll down to the bottom of the pop-up window, and then select the Select button.
