Mobile Admin App


Add a Category via my iOS

Who can use this feature?




If you would like to add a new category to one of the available modules, it is a similar process to how you would create it through the CivicEngage platform on a desktop or laptop computer.


  1. Find the module you would like to add the category to
  2. Select Add Category
    • Note: If your screen is blank, that means you do not have permissions to the module. You will need to contact one of your System Administrators to discuss access.
  3. Fill out the information
    • Name: The name of the category
    • Brief Description: Brief description of what will be in the category
    • Show Lead In: Allows you to choose to show the lead in text never, always, or only if full text is blank for the items in the category
    • Email List: Allows events in this category to be sent to a list of email subscribers
    • Allow Subscribers: Allows people to subscribe to a list on their own
    • Allow SMS: Allows people to subscribe to SMS updates
    • Add/Modify Item RSS Behavior: 
      • Include in RSS Feed: Will include the blog in a user's RSS feed; this includes new and modified items
      • Do Not Include in RSS Feed: Will not include the blog in a user's RSS feed; this includes new and modified items
      • Always Ask: Will ask for each item if you would like it to be included
    • Category Permissions: Allows you to set permissions for the category
    • Show Category Archives to Public: Allows the archived items to be viewable by the public
  4. Select a Save option
    • Save: Allows you to come back to and work on it later 
    • Save and Publish: Saves the changes and publishes it to the live site

I'd Like to Request an Enhancement
