How can I group room entries thematically?
There are two ways to group entries thematically. You can apply them individually or in combination and within a rubric or across rubrics.
Option 1—“Linked entries”: If you have thematically related entries, it makes sense to cross-reference them against each other. Each entry will contain a list of all linked referenced entries, which you can access directly.
To link entries with each other, select one of them, navigate to “Linked entries” and open the editor view. You can search for entries or view recently edited entries. Check the entries you wish to link with the entry that is currently open. Confirm your selection by clicking “Save” at the end of the list.
To see the linked entries, expand the “Linked entries” menu by clicking the arrow on the right-hand side.
You can use this method to link a document to the date on which it will be used or to a discussion about the document. It is also useful to link tasks to the dates on which they will be discussed or to documents that are useful for completing the respective task.
Option 2—“Tags”: To group multiple entries that share a topic, you can also add tags to them. This will make the room much more orderly. It also allows users to see all entries that have similarities in form or content.
To tag an entry, navigate to the “Linked entries” section in the entry itself (third tab, “Tags”). Check or uncheck existing tags to select or deselect them or add new tags. Save your changes.
When you navigate to a rubric or the homepage of your room, a list of tags will be displayed on the right side. You can use it to access individual entries and, if available, other entries carrying the same tag.
You can use the tags to see, for example, a list of all homework, presentation dates, documents by a specific author, articles, discussions about a specific topic, material entries linked to discussions, etc., as long as these entries carry the same tag.
