1. Glossary Branding

Branding Smart Terms: you can customize the top area of the glossary by adding a custom glossary title, glossary logo, and the announcement.

There are two levels of branding configuration: 

A space key indication is added to the glossary title.

When the glossary is global or deactivated, a special icon displays to the right of the title.

2. Alphabetical index 

This allows filtering terms alphabetically like in dictionaries. 

The alphabetic index is auto-structured. When a new term title is added with a new letter, this letter is automatically added to the index list.

3. New term

Displays the Term creation form. (Check the roles matrix for more details about term creation's permissions)

4. Actions

Actions display depending on the user's rights. Check the Roles matrix for more details. 

Import terms

Displays the import terms form to create/update terms in bulk mode from an external file.

Select a data file to automatically import terms into the current glossary. You can upload an Excel or a CSV file.

Term title and definition are 2 important and mandatory fields to properly upload an Excel and CSV file below:

Files with extra or missing columns can still be imported successfully.

Here are a few instructions to import a multilanguage glossary using the above template:

  1. Always keep the language cell empty for the default language
  2. Use the following language codes to add terms in other selected languages other than the default one ( the same way as shown in the below example)

Once you choose a file, two options are suggested: 

  • Update existing terms: If this option is selected, existing terms with the same title will be replaced with the newly imported terms. 
  • Reset existing terms media: if selected, existing term media will be removed. 

A log console allows following the upload progress and reports any encountered errors.

All terms details, shown in the term editor, can be added using the uploaded file. Import and export of media are only supported for CSV files.

Import terms option is available for space glossaries but not for the global glossary.

Export
