How do I use topics on Workplace?
Topics are used to group posts that are related. This helps to keep content in groups organized and makes it easier for you to find related posts from across your whole organization.
To make a topic, type # (the number sign) along with a topic or phrase and add it to your post. For example:
"Tina has just joined the team! #NewHire"
Topics will also be suggested to you based on the content of your post. Topics pinned by the group admin will show first in the list of suggestions. Posts can include up to 30 topics.
When you click on a topic in your News Feed, you’ll see a list of posts that include that topic. These posts can come from any of the groups which you have access to on Workplace.
If you want to search topics within a specific group, you can use the search bar below that group’s cover image or click a topic attached to a post. Alternatively, you can click Topics below the group’s cover image.
- A topic must be written without any spaces.
- You can include numbers in a topic, but punctuation and special characters (like $ and %) won't work.
- You can search for a topic using the Workplace search bar.
- You'll only see posts that you have access to view. Posts from closed or secret groups which you are not a member of will not be included in topic search results.
