It's Rachel here - I'm a product manager on the Atlas team. I'm excited to announce an exciting new experience in Atlas, with topics!
You'll now see Topics in your navigation menu, as a way to browse all the topics in your Atlas workspace and clicking into them will take you into a magic wonderland of all the work, teams and knowledge associated with that topic. Read on to find out more about our new topic homepages.
One thing we've learned from talking to and observing how thousands of different teams work is that 💡 different audiences have different needs when it comes to communicating about work.
Someone highly dependent on a project may want the details of what happened last week, whereas someone further from the work may want to understand how it fits in relation to other projects in the same space.
To deliver the right granularity of information, Atlas has different ways of grouping work so that it can be more contextual to each audience. One way to do this is through tagging with topics to curate work. Here’s what you’ll unlock through the power of topics.
Every topic in Atlas has its own homepage where you can see what work is happening, who’s working on it, what knowledge they’ve gathered and how it’s all going.
It all starts from the Topic Directory, where you can browse all topics in your workspace. Alternatively, you can click through any topic added to a project, goal, help link or question.
When you tag a project, goal, question, or help link in Atlas a topic is created its homepage is automatically generated, aggregating all relevant work, knowledge, and team that have been tagged with that topic.
Projects and goals shows an overview of the work happening within a topic and how it’s tracking, so you can quickly dig into whatever needs attention.
Help and knowledge curates learnings from projects, help links and questions about a topic making it easier to share and consume knowledge built up across the organisation.
The updates tab shows updates for all the projects and goals tagged with this topic, so you can catch up and celebrate progress.
People and teams who are contributing the most on work within a topic area will be highlighted on the right panel, to celebrate their expertise but also provide a community of relevant experts to speak to.
What happens once you’ve followed a topic? You’ll now receive updates from any projects and goals, help or knowledge tagged with that topic. You’ll also be able to quickly access the topic feed from your Home screen. Learn more here.
Add topics by tagging projects, goals, questions, and help links in Atlas. Once a topic has been created, any Atlas user can contribute to the knowledge in a topic by creating help links, asking questions, or tagging projects and goals with that topic. Topic names cannot be edited at this stage.
When you follow a topic in Atlas, you’ll see a feed for that topic in the left-hand sidebar in your Atlas Home. This feed will show the latest updates from projects and goals that have been tagged with that topic. Think of the topic feed as a way to quickly filter your All updates feed.
A topic’s homepage, accessible from the topics directory, aggregates all projects and goals and their updates, help and knowledge, and people. To view a topic’s homepage, just click a tag anywhere in Atlas or find the topic via the topics directory.
Thanks Atlas community for your continued support of Atlas. We look forward to you trying out this new set of features for curating work and hearing your feedback.
