First off, thanks Discourse team for making an AMAZING product. We’ve been on Discourse now for over a year and really, really love the platform you’ve built. Thank you!!
Forgive me if this is a feature I’ve missed but would love to see the option to have suggested tags when someone posts a discussion.
Our members often don’t know all of the tags we have. And, even if they do, they often won’t take the time to tag their discussion appropriately.
It’d be pretty great if somewhere in the posting flow (perhaps in between clicking the “Create Topic” button and posting the discussion) there was a pop-up that said: “Do you want to add any of these tags?”
It could simply do a basic search in the new discussion text to see if it matches any of the tags we have. If so, give the user the option to easily add them. Our tags are specific enough that while there would be some matches that wouldn’t be relevant most would be.
Allowing people to quickly choose from a pre-selected list of tags with 1-click per tag would be amazing and would likely help us be able to keep our discussions well tagged with much less admin work.
Just a suggestion I know we’d love and use.
