Contextual Tagging makes it possible to show users solely the content that is of interest to them.
You might have content that is only useful for a specific country, office or job profile. It’s possible to add Contextual Tags to Menu Items as well.

How does it work? You can create a global course for example and create a tag for each item (word, person in the people finder, checklist item in the checklist, question in the FAQ) in a Menu Item separately.

*We recommend to use Google Chrome to ensure an optimal experience when using AppicalNow.

Step 1. Navigate to courses in the menu.

Step 2. Next, click on ‘editor’ in the bottom left corner of the course where the menu item is located.

Step 3. Click on ‘Menu Items’

Step 4. Navigate to the Menu Item and click on the gear icon to open the menu.

Step 5. Select 'Enable tags'.

Step 6. Choose whether you want to select the tags per Category or per Item.

If you select 'Per item', you will have to select the tag(s) for each item (word, person in the people finder, checklist item in the checklist, question in the FAQ) separately. 

If you select 'Category' you can add the tag(s) to a category instead. All items within this category will have the tag that you add to the category'.
