Using Taxonomy Search

Prerequisites: See Taxonomy Prerequisites for details.

Depending on your organization's needs, the Taxonomy Tree can have multiple embedded parent-child structures. For deeply embedded classification structures within Taxonomy Manager, users with permissions can search for specific categories or associated synonyms rather than scanning the Taxonomy Tree.

To use Taxonomy search:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Taxonomy.
  2. Enter the category title or synonym in the Search field. As you enter the term, possible matches display.
  3. Select the appropriate category from the list. The category displays in the Taxonomy Tree, and its associated information displays in the Category tab.

    Additional Info:

    The Language field value determines whether or not the category or its localized version displays.

    For example, if you select Products instead of its localized Spanish version, Productos, in the Search field, and the Language field displays español - Spanish [es], then Productos displays in the Taxonomy Tree and the Categorize tab. To display Products, ensure the Language field displays English (United States) [en-us].

    See Localizing Taxonomy for details.

  4. Optional: Review or edit any of the associated tabs.
