What is it?

Tagging Articles is an extremely useful feature within elevio. By tagging an article with keywords and matching those keywords to different pages on your site, elevio is able to make sure that only the most relevant information gets shown to your users.

When you tag an article to a certain page, anyone opening the sidebar while on that page will be shown the article you have tagged first. This means your users won’t need to go looking for the most pertinent information.

How to do it.

Here's a quick video guide (and the text is below):

To tag an article, log in to elevio and click ‘Articles’ in the left hand panel. Click the little pencil icon next to the article to want to tag and this will open the article editor.

Scroll down to the ‘keywords’ field and enter any keywords you want to use to tag the article with. Once this is saved, click on ‘Pages’ in the left hand panel.

Hit ‘Add page’ and paste in the exact URL of the page you want to tag. If you want to tag a group of pages, you can modify the dynamic part of the URL to (.*) as a wildcard, so the tag will apply to any URL’s which have the rest of the address in common. For example https://www.mysite.com/users/(.*)/view will work when any user number is substituted in for the wildcard.

Add the same keywords to the page that you tagged your articles with and hit save. Your tagged articles will now show up first to any users who are on the page you have specified.

If you want to use regular expressions, use this tool to help crafting your regular expression.

Suggestions without tagging

You'll notice that elevio shows "Suggestions" for relevant articles even if you don't tag any articles. Until the algorithm learns which articles to suggest, it will just choose articles that match keywords in the URL. As it learns which articles users need, it will put those into suggestions.
