I’m trying to find ways to organize content and data at group and member level, and to link, contextualize, search and extract it via a unified tagging system.
For example, for a particular project managed via a group, I would like to ‘pull’, link together and make accessible in one place all the relevant resources: content and data of different kinds, that are currently siloed into different places and with tagging systems that do not ‘talk’ to each other:
- External files (uploaded),
- Internal documents (wiki pages, docs, posts etc)
- External URLs
Currently I haven’t found ways to make a search on a tag and get as a result the people, groups, documents, posts, links, uploaded files etc… that have this particular tag or group of tags… Currently I am doing this via the Group extras pages, and an embedded pearltree where I organize in a king of mindmap all the links to the URLs external or internal of these elements. But this is fastidious to maintain.
I would also like to do this at a member’s level, for example allow members to associate themselves to wiki pages, posts (and their groups of tags) or individual tags etc, in order to indicate their interests or areas of expertise, and to constitute their own content librairies.
I haven’t thought this totally through yet, but was wondering if anyone was also interested in this type of thing or already working on it, and if there were plugins that could help get closer to this.
