Bookmark Categories

In order to Bookmark content, we must first create Bookmark Categories against which we can add the Bookmarks.

  • Think about how you want to group your Bookmarks, say Things to Review, or Requests to review, Documents i need to look at or whatever makes sense to you.

Create a Bookmark Category from the right hand side BookMarks collapsable panel, and from the drop down menu choose Add Bookmark Category

  • Give the Bookmark Category a name and select OK, it's as simple as that
  • Remember these are persona to you and will not be used by any other Hornbill user.

Adding Bookmarks

You can bookmark any Hornbill content, be it a post in a workspace, a document or a request.

  • From the Bookmarks side bar, and with the required Bookmark Category selected from the drop down, simple click Bookmark Current Page
  • This will add the current page as a Bookmark to that Bookmark Category


  • From any Post on an activity stream, use the More Actions drop down, select Add Bookmark and then the Bookmark Category you wish to add the Post too
  • This will add that page as a Bookmark to the chosen Bookmark Category
