Following on from the having the ability to Hide specific Topics, we've now introduced a feature to Remove topics from all aggregations across any game. With this feature, you'll be able to remove any Topic from across the dashboard to evaluate how your game performs without your removed Topic.
How to Remove a Topic
As with all of the areas of the platform we work on, we've aimed to make it very simple to remove a Topic inside the dashboard. The first thing you'll need to do is navigate into a specific Topic that you would like to remove.
Once inside a Topic, you'll see the Topic Action button in the top right-hand side of the page (as seen in the image below).
Once you click on the Topic Action button you'll see the a dropdown menu appear. To continue with removing the Topic, click on 'Remove Topic'.
A warning prompt will then appear asking for confirmation before setting the Topic to Removed.
When you remove a Topic, the Topic and all of it's associated interactions are then removed across the game. This is especially useful if you are wanting to evaluate the impact a certain Topic is having on your community sentiment.
Reviewing Removed Topics
You can review what Topics have been removed for a specific game, either by yourself or by one of your colleagues, by visiting the Community Hub page. Once on the page, look for the Dashboard Customisation icon in the Hub sidebar. Clicking on this icon should give you this view...
From here, you will see a list of your removed Topics.
Restoring a Topic
There are two methods to unhide a previously removed Topic. The first is to navigate to the Dashboard Customisation tab on the Hub page and then click the bin icon. Clicking this icon will restore the Topic.
The second method is from within the Topic page itself and is in place should you make a mistake when removing the Topic initially. To undo any removed Topics from within the individual Topics page, simply click the line below the Topic title and this will restore the Topic once again.
