Tagging Resources in Posts

Tagging allow instructors and learners to map Teamie resources (lessons, lesson pages and assessments) in a post on the site. While migrating this functionality to Dash, we thought of enhancing it. Unlike before, users will be able to tag a specific page within a lesson too.

In this section, we’ll focus on how to tag lessons, lesson pages and assessments (quiz, assignment and offline tests are referred as assessments) in post.

This article will guide you on:

Tagging Resources in a post from global Add button

1. Click the global Add (+).

2. Click to select the Post type (Thought, Question or Homework).

3. Type your thought in the text box and attach files, if any.

4. In the post creation form, you can simply type @ and then start typing any word. Teamie will show you suggestions matching the entered text. These suggestions appear based on the classroom(s) that you have selected, and are grouped into 3 categories:

  • Lessons & Lesson pages
  • Assessments
  • People

Note 1: Auto-populated list shows only the published resources for the selected classrooms and not the draft ones.

Note 2: Till no classroom is selected to share the post with, all classrooms resources will be shown in the auto populated list.

5. Select a resource from the suggestion list either by using down arrow or by mouse click.

6. After you have selected a resource from the list, it will be tagged and start appearing in the post sharing form and would also be attached as an attachment in the post (Will annotate the attachment part while addressing your feedback).

7. You can tag more resources in a post if required. But we’d like to explain what happens after tagging a resource in a post. So, currently one resource has been tagged in this post and  if you click on Share with… drop-down to select the classroom(s) to share the post with, you will notice that only those classrooms will be available for selection to which the tagged resource belongs to. Rest of the classrooms will be disabled for selection and hovering over those classrooms will show a warning message stating that “tagged resource does not belong to this classroom”.

So, basically once you tag a resource that belong to one or more classrooms, the next resource you want to tag needs to be from the same classroom(s).

8. Repeat the step 4 to tag more resources in the post. And as explained in step 7, this time you will see a list of resources from the classroom(s) to which the first tagged resource belongs to.

9. All the tagged resources will appear both in the post share form and as attachments in the post.

10. Click Share with… drop-down to select a classroom to share the post with.

11. Click Post Now to share your post.

12. You can click the link in the notification message to view the post.

FAQ's

Q1. What happens if I delete the resources (lessons/lesson page/assessments) which were tagged in a post? Will it also delete the post along with the deleted resources?

A) It's a simple No. Deleting a resource (lessons/lesson page/assessment) from a classroom will not delete the tagged post and you can continue seeing such post(s) in the Posts tab of that classroom.

Q2. Will it have any impact on a resource if the post, that has been tagged with the resource, gets deleted?

A) No. The resource will just get unlinked from the post and the post will be deleted permanently.

Q3. What happens if you delete a post that was created as a part of discussion in a lesson/lesson page/assessment and the resource it is tagged with was shared with multiple classrooms?

A) When you initiate a discussion from a lesson / lesson page / assignment, then the classroom to which the resource belongs to is selected by default and the resource is tagged to that post. The post will be created only in that classroom with that tagged resource. Therefore, deleting the post will just unlink the resource from the post and the post will get deleted permanently.

Q4. What happens if you delete a post which is shared with multiple classrooms and is tagged with a resource?

A) As soon you share a post with multiple classrooms, multiple copies of the post are created (each one for a classroom it is shared with). So deleting a post from one classroom will just unlink the resource from the post and the post will get deleted permanently from that classroom only, and not from any other classrooms it is shared with.

Note 1: You can create a post with a tagged resource only in those classrooms to which the tagged resource belongs.

Note 2: Learners can not share a post with multiple classrooms whereas instructors can.
