Adding Categories for Organizing and Finding Your Organization's Yellowdig Boards

When a Yellowdig board is created, the user creating the board is required to select a Category.  Organizational admins are able to create and manage these Categories to keep Yellowdig boards organized for the institution. There is a default set of Categories that can be made active or inactive or you can add new ones.  Useful categories might be college departments, which can help instructors and learners students look for relevant boards. 

To create a new category, follow the steps below:

  1. Log into the "Admin board" from the arrow pull-down at the top right.
  2. Click on the "Set categories" tab.
  3. Click on the "+" icon.


  1. Fill in the name and Click on the "Add" icon.

You should find a new category in the category area.

Note: We currently don't support deleting categories. If you have created a wrong category by accident, just make sure the category is inactive and it will not appear in the platform.
