Create and manage FAQ topics

Topics are one way you can organize the FAQs in each of your Groups. When a user is viewing your group's homepage, they'll see an option to browse FAQs by topic. They'll also be able to filter search results by topic, as well. In addition, topics can also be used to create customized FAQ List widgets.

To manage a group's topics:

  1. Go to Admin > Metadata.
  2. While viewing the Topics tab, use the Switch to Group dropdown to select the group you want to view.
