Use topics to organize Amplify content

Create "topics" in Amplify to organize Amplify content and make it easy to find and share. You can subscribe members and teams to specific topics.

Audience: Amplify admins

Create a topic

Create topics and then assign your Amplify content to them. You can create Open or Closed topics.

  1. Go to your Amplify stream , select More, and then select Topics.
  2. Select New topic +.
  3. Enter a topic name (up to 20 characters).
  4. Select Open or Closed.
    • Open topics - All advocates can see these topics. They can find and subscribe to those they find interesting. For Open topics to show up in Amplify, they need to have at least four pieces of content.
    • Closed topics - Only advocates subscribed to these topics can see them. As an admin, you must subscribe advocates to Closed topics (see Manage Amplify members and permissions). A lock next to a topic helps you identify Closed topics.
  5. Select Save.
If a post is in both an open and a closed topic, only advocates subscribed to the closed topic can see it. And if a topic is changed from open to closed, the members subscribed to that topic remain subscribed to it.

Delete a topic

If a topic has become stale or is no longer relevant, you can delete it.

  1. Go to your Amplify stream , select More, and then select Topics.
  2. Select a topic from the list, and then select Delete.
    Important: Deleting a topic unsubscribes everyone from it. Posts that are only in that topic (not in others) expire. They're removed from your advocates' Amplify, but stay in your Amplify stream Posted section.

Subscribe a member or team to a topic

Subscribe members or teams to topics. It's a great way to organize your advocates around content that's relevant to them.

  1. Go to your Amplify stream , select More, and then select Members & Teams.
  2. Select a member or team, and then select Subscriptions at the bottom of the list.
  3. Select the topics you want to subscribe them to, and then select Save.

View topic and subscriber information

You can see how many subscribers a topic has and how many posts members shared posts in a topic. You can also download a CSV file of topic information.

  1. Go to your Amplify stream , select More, and then select Topics.
  2. Select a topic to view subscribers and number of posts tagged with that topic.
  3. Select CSV at the top of the screen to download a .csv file of topic subscribers, their email addresses, and job titles.

Select Filter to view Drafts, Scheduled, or Posted content by topic or language.
