Discover is the centralized content vault for your private network. All network-wide content and groups are showcased within Discover. Keep in mind that even on Discover, the content that you can view are based on access. Although you can see all your private content and any private content shared with you, other members of the network will only see content that they have access to. Here are some tips and tricks to Discover content and groups like a pro.
Filter by Category and Content, and Sort Using a Variety of Options
There are three main filters on Discover:
- Category Type - Categories are predefined by your network administrator. When content is created, users can choose which category that content may fall under. You can then filter by category to find the content you're looking for.
- Content Type - Choose from a variety of content types to filter your Discover experience. Content types include Spaces, Ideas, Publications, Polls, Boards, Challenges, and Inventions.
- Sorting Options - Choose how the content is sorted. Generally, it's best to go newest to oldest, but there may be instances where you might want to start with the oldest content first. You can also sort content alphabetically (from A-Z and vice-versa), trending score, and zScore.
Refine to Narrow Down Your Search
Refine is another great example of how the right tools can help improve your user experience. Refine allows you to pinpoint content on Discover by keyword or network-wide groups. Network-wide groups are created by network administrators. Refine + Filter is a great method to see what types of content a particular group is working on. For example, if you want to see all the Ideas introduced by marketing, filter by Ideas, then further refine to just Marketing. See the screenshot below for an example.
View Content using Either Card or List View
By Default, Discover follows a masonry layout - content is displayed on cards with the image, title, author, and summary of card content. Although this masonry layout allows for more information to be displayed about any particular content, sometimes it's faster to find the content you are looking for using a list view. Click the Toggle View button to allow users to change between the two different viewing formats.
