Adding Terms to a Taxonomy

At Plek it is possible, just as in Google, to find everything in your Plek via the search engine. It can be useful to also use the taxonomy of Plek. With the taxonomy, it is possible to grant certain characteristics to documents, pages, events, messages, groups, and even colleagues. This makes it very easy to find everything and everyone.


Adding terms to an existing taxonomy

To add terms to an existing taxonomy, take the following steps:

  1. First, go to the Admin section in your Plek: hover over your own name at the menu and click on Admin.

Now you arrive at the Admin panel. In the left sidebar, there are different components, including Taxonomy.


  1. Click on Taxonomy.

You will arrive at the overview of the existing taxonomies. Here it is also possible to change and give content to the existing taxonomies.

  1. Click on the name of taxonomy or click on the edit icon at the right of the taxonomy.
  2. Then, click on New Term.
  3. Fill in a name.
  4. Click on Create.


Your term is now saved in the taxonomy. It is possible to add more terms by again following steps 4, 5 and 6. It might be that your Plek platform is available in multiple languages. In that case, check our article about setting up taxonomy in multiple languages.



Don’t make an extensive folder structure. Try to limit the use of the terms inside a taxonomy to a maximum of 10. Then people have a better overview and it is easier to find documents, persons, and messages.
