Editable tag list to keep content organized

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Cronycle provides a full content curation workflow, that includes organizing curated content. We empower teams to control a tag list across their organisation. Such a system is necessary to keep a tight and meaningful taxonomy. We covered this point on a previous post about keeping tags organized. Now, you get an editable tag list to keep content organized.

Reminder of what is the organization tag list

If you are using Cronycle for content curation and have an Enterprise subscription, you may have noticed that admin users can set up the list of tags. When that is done, only those listed tags can be applied to content – across all boards within your organization.

What has changed?

Until recently, the list used could only be modified by adding a new CSV file. This option, which replaces with the new CSV, is still available. But now, you can also build and modify the tag list within the admin console interface. It is much easier to add a new tag, without having to juggle several tools. But it is not too easy either, ensuring your organization tag list continues to keep content curation organized.

What else can you do now to keep content organized?

Other options include:

  • Download the current list of tags as CSV – useful to take your list across to other tools, for example building your SEO tag list
  • Replace with a new list (CSV): in this case, the current list is deleted and replaced with the new one you upload. Tags already applied to content you curated will not be affected. But the available tags going forward have changed.
  • Select and batch delete, or delete single tags. Here as well, deletion impacts available tags going forward only, and does not remove tags already applied on content.

When adding new tags using a CSV, remember to follow the instructions on how to format tags. You find this information, and more, in the Q&A on the page:

Cronycle expects a CSV file containing the first column with the list of your tags. Other columns will be ignored. Remember that tags cannot contain spaces, special characters or more than 40 characters.

Language compatibility

We’ve also worked with one of our client on making sure it works in languages using characters such as French é, ç or à. We did a few updates to improve this aspect as well, making sure the editable tag list keeps content organized in many languages. Let us know if you spot something missing in your language!

Metrics on the tag list

What’s more, you can now see the total amount of instances for each tag: how many times has each one been applied across all the boards within your organization. In the example above, the imbalance between course tags is quite striking, corresponding to a lack of reference material for some courses. This is one of the first metrics we added, you will start to see more of these going forward, helping you fine tune your content curation process.
