How do I create and use space categories?

To make your space categorization more robust and personal, you can now assign original categories to your spaces.  Other users will not be able to see your categories – they are just for you.  Categories will carry over when you copy spaces as well. 

Space categories are created, edited, and used on the Space Page, and can also be used for filtering your My Kona view.  You access this page by clicking on Spaces from the left sidebar of Kona, and then clicking the “Manage” link.

To create space categories: On the Space page, click the “+Add category” link to the right of all the filter selections.  Click “Manage.”  Then click “+Add category” and type in your new category name.  When you’ve finished adding categories, click “Save.”

To rename space categories: On the Space page, click the “+Add category” link to the right of all the filter selections.  Click “Manage.”  Then hover over the category name you want to change and click the “Rename” link.  Type in the new category name.  When you’ve finished renaming categories, click “Save.”

To delete space categories: On the Space page, click the “+Add category” link to the right of all the filter selections.  Click “Manage.”  Then hover over the category name you want to change and click the “X”.  When you’ve finished deleting categories, click “Save.”

To assign categories to spaces: On the Space page, hover over the space you want to assign a category to until you see a drop-down arrow appear to the right of the space name.  Click “Edit space” from the drop-down menu.  In the Category field, select the category you want to assign this space to.  Then click “Save.”

To filter spaces by category on the Space Page: On the Space page, click the category name from the list of filters under the “Find spaces” field in the top left of the screen.  If you have more than four categories, you may need to click the “More” filter to choose the category you want.

To filter spaces by category in the left sidebar of Kona: From the left sidebar of Kona, click “Spaces.”  Then click the drop-down menu under the “Find spaces” field.  This menu will show all the default and original categories.  Select the category that you want from the menu and your space list will be filtered to only show spaces in that category.

To setup email notifications for a category: Click on your picture in the upper right of Kona and then choose “Notifications” from the drop-down menu. In here, you’ll be able to select which category of spaces you want to receive notifications for. Moving forward, you will only receive email notifications for the spaces in the selected category. If you select Favorite spaces, you will receive digests for all of your favorite spaces, regardless of the other categories they exist in. Choose All spaces to continue to receive digests for any active space.  Using categories for email notifications is an important way for you to be in control of the digests you receive so that only specifically categorized spaces will email you, and the others you can catch up on in Kona.
