You can create both topics and articles in your Tribal Habits portal.

Tribal Habits has two different types of knowledge/content - topics and articles. While they share some similarities, they are also quite different.

What are Articles?

Articles are typically for simple or short knowledge.

  • Articles are single pages of content. There are no internal navigation options.

  • Articles cannot use system modules like Overview, Insights or Destination as well as separate Assessment or Activity modules.

  • Articles are faster to create, with no initial planning process.

  • They are perfect for product knowledge, internal policies or simple processes.

  • When creating articles, you do not have access to Sage and her feedback or our free topic review service.

  • All organisations have the ability to create Articles.

What are Topics?

Topics are typically for more substantial knowledge.

  • Topics can have many pages of content with an internal navigation structure.

  • Topics can use system modules such as Overview, Review and Destination.

  • Topics can have separate assessments and activities.

  • Topics can use the topic outlining process before you start creating content.

  • When creating topics, you can use Sage for her feedback and advice plus our free topic review service.

  • Creating topics requires that your organisation has a Creator package in its subscription.

Content Differences

Finally, there can be some content differences between Articles and Topics.

  • Access to all content creation options requires a Creator package in your organisation's subscription.

  • If your organisation does not have a Creator package, then articles will be limited to using Text, Columns, Image, File, Embed, Poll and Quiz. More complex content options and some media content options require the Creator package.
