Embed categorization tags

If you are using the BrightTALK embed, you can add categorization tags are a method of embed filtering that Channel Owners can leverage to better segment their content for a variety of audiences. This is useful for Channel Owners who would like to provide their audiences with a more specific viewing option.  Here is a quick overview of this feature:

How do Category tags work?

Category tags are hierarchical- there is the category itself and then there are selectable values under that category.  For instance, you may have a category called "Language" and under that category have values for "Spanish", "German", and "English".  You can have up to three categories and as many as 20 values under each individual category (although we recommend using less than 10 to keep it more manageable).

How do I set up categories for my Channel?

To set up categories for your Channel, please use the support ticket form in BrightTALK Central.  You'll need to specify what to call your Categories and also the values that go under each category.

How do I tag my content into categories?

Once category tags are configured for your Channel, you will then see them on the scheduling forms for Talks, Replays, and Videos:



Where do the categories appear for the audience?

Once categories are configured for your Channel, you'll need to generate a "Channel listing embed" from your "Invite your network" page (under Settings).  You'll see now in the embed code that the categories show up as filterable drop-down menus:
