How can I view guides by flag type?

As we add hundreds of Work instructions, I believe there needs to be reports that help us identify gaps without opening hundreds of work instructions. A perfect example is the Flags. They seem useless because you have to open the guide in order to find out what needs to happen.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Bob,

You can actually generate a list of guides by flag type—so flags can be very useful. You also have the ability to create custom flags.

To generate a list of guides by flag type you will use the following URL (you'll need to replace yoursite with your actual site name):

http://yoursite.dozuki.com/Contribute?flagFilter=Private

At the end of the URL you'll notice that it says flagFilter=Private, Private is the flag ID. You can replace the Private flag ID with any of the Flag ID's listed on the [Info:flags|flags wiki page|new_window=true].

For example, if I wanted to generate a list of guides with the flag In Progress, I would add the In Progress flag ID to the end of the URL.

http://yoursite.dozuki.com/Contribute?flagFilter=GUIDE_IN_PROGRESS

Guide flags can be customized and new flags can be created. You can view your current flags on your site at:

http://yoursite.dozuki.com/Info/flags

Another option is to tag your guides. You can tag guides and generate a dynamic guidelist] on a wiki or category page.

In an example we created we tagged all of our work instruction guides with the tag name WI. Then we created a wiki page and pulled in all guides with the tag name WI. We did this for the parts and tools used in the work instructions as well. We tagged our Item pages with the tag name Tools and pulled in all item pages with the tag name Tools. Take a look at this example on our demo site Gunner Motors.

A category, wiki, item, and guide page can all have tags added to them. You can add as many tags as you'd like too—so you can generate as many guide lists or wiki lists as you need.
