The Taxonomy Editor allows you to create and edit hierarchical label trees into which to funnel your data.
To access the Taxonomy Editor from the home page, in the navigation panel to the left, click the Models tab. Then, select Taxonomies and then click New Taxonomy; or click the plus button in the bottom right corner. You can also edit existing taxonomies, or upload one you've already created outside of the Stratifyd platform.
Layout of the Taxonomy Editor
Labels: These are the bones of your taxonomy skeleton, a folder-like structure. In the labels panel to the left, there is a tree containing all of the labels in your taxonomy hierarchy. Right-click any label to add a new label under it, copy the label, or delete the label. Note that you cannot delete the top-level label. You can drag and drop labels into new positions within the hierarchy.
You can collapse labels that you are not using to simplify your view.
Tabs: Each label can have multiple tabs of logic blocks. Additional tabs are joined using an AND connection. You may wish to create multiple tabs for better organization.
Block Logic: This is where we write our keyword rules and set overarching logic rules. There are three types of block logic: any, all, none.
Scope: Define how much text should be considered when applying your logic. This can be done at the sentence, document, or paragraph level.
Syntax: Each rule in your taxonomy should be separated by commas and will follow the logic of the container that it's in (ALL, NONE, ANY). Wildcards, boolean, exact matches
