Directories let you create a library of valuable information and have it easily accessible to the users when they need it.
What you get with Directories:
Publish a variety of content, keeping it organized and easily accessible.
Encourage users to add content wherever relevant
Have users publicize the valuable information you add to the directory with users who are unaware of it.
Gather feedback, by analyzing what the users access or look for more frequently.
Go to the Directories setup page
On the admin panel go to Directories
Select one of the pre-set templates or create one from scratch
There are a couple of pre-set templates that we have added based on the common use-cases for Directories like Stories, Newsletter, Business Directory, and a few more.
You can select one of those or create one from the top.
Creating a Directory from pre-set templates
If you choose a pre-set template, all the setup needed to publish a Directory will be done for you.
Form with all the relevant fields and settings would be linked
Display settings for the Directory will be all set
Filters and sort options will be added too
Note: The setup is not hard-set. You are free to make changes as you wish.
Recommendation: Make changes to the form before adding any entry. Certain forms settings are disabled once the entries are in.
Creating a custom Directory
Choose this if you want to do the setup a Directory from the ground up —
Step 1 - Create a form to collect the information to be listed.
Step 2 - Set up a Directory to display the information in an organized way.
Recommendation: Use this option only when any pre-set directory doesn't suit your need.
