Getting Started with LinkEmu Bookmarks

Learn how to do basic bookmarking and managing of resources

Two important pages

My Links

This page is where you can create all of your resources (bookmarks, podcasts, to-do lists, etc). It is only accessible and visible to you. Everything you create and arrange in LinkEmu will happen here.

Profile

This page is your public-facing page. Everything you have marked as 'public' will appear here for the world to see. The order you have put your resources in will appear in your profile page the same way. If your plan is PRO, BUSINESS, or CORPORATE your bookmarks will be "DOFOLLOW" which means they will be visible to search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo!

Create bookmarks and other resources

Create a library

All resources will reside in a "Library". To create one, first go to your "My Links" page by clicking link in the upper right of the navigation bar. Click the "NEW LIBRARY" button. Enter the name of your new library.

You can also choose whether or not this entire library will be shareable and/or public. Be aware that anything you place in this library will also be public and shareable according to the options you select within the library. If the library does not have the 'public' option selected nothing within this particular library will be visible to the public, including the library name itself.

Hint: It is better to leave the library as both 'public' and 'shareable', which are the defaults. That way you will maintain the flexibility to make the individual resources within the library either shareable or private.

Create a category

All bookmarks reside within a category. To create a category choose the library within which you'd like to place it. There you will see add_circle. Click to bring up the menu and click "new bookmarks category". Enter a name for the category. You can also begin to add bookmarks by clicking "Add Bookmarks"

You can also choose whether or not this entire category will be shareable and/or public. Be aware that anything you place in this category will also be public and shareable according to the options you select within the category. If the category does not have the 'public' option selected nothing within this particular category will be visible to the public, including the category block itself.

Enter bookmark urls

All bookmarks reside within a category. First choose the Library and Category where you'd like to keep your bookmark or create new ones. Within the category block click add_circle to add a single bookmark or a collection of bookmarks. Enter the urls to your bookmarks and choose whether or not they will be public and/or shareable. Save the bookmarks. And there it is! beautifully curated bookmarks.

Create a podcast list

All podcasts reside within a library. To create a podcast choose the library within which you'd like to place it. There you will see add_circle. Click to bring up the menu and click "new podcast". Start typing the name of the podcast and select one from the list that appears. You can also select how many podcasts you'd like to keep in the queue. LinkEmu will automatically update your list according to how many you'd like to keep in your list.

Create a to-do list

All to-do lists reside within a library. To create a podcast choose the library within which you'd like to place it. There you will see add_circle. Click to bring up the menu and click "new podcast". Start typing the name of the podcast and select one from the list that appears. You can also select how many podcasts you'd like to keep in the queue. LinkEmu will automatically update your list according to how many you'd like to keep in your list.

Sorting

Drag and drop sorting

You can sort all resources by clicking and holding the header of the block (the topmost part of each box).

Libraries are sorted the same way. Click and hold the library title and drag it up and down to place it where you'd like.

Move resources to different library

If you would like to move a resource (an entire category) to a different library entirely, click the edit button edit at the left of each category header. Just below the heading "In Library" select which library within which you would like to place the resource. Click "save".

Sharing

Start sharing

You can only share your structured resources if you are on the PRO, BUSINESS, or CORPORATE plan. Go to your account page page to switch to a higher plan. To share, check the 'shareable' option when you create any resource.

Share with fellow LinkEmu users

Go to your "My Links" page. At the upper right next to your username click share. Within the share controls you will see all of your resources listed and the structure you have given them. Each resource has a checkbox. Check the ones you would like to share with your fellow user. Under the "Share Your Library" heading you can search for a user. If you cannot find the person you are looking for, he/she is not yet signed or they have their account set to 'private'. But don't worry! If the person you want to send to is not signed up you can invite them to do so by clicking "Can't find user?". Click it and enter the email(s) of the user(s) you'd like to invite. They will be sent an invitation and the resources you'd like to share will be there waiting for them when they sign up.

Inviting non-LinkEmu users

If you are on the FREE or PRO plan, you can invite users any time by going to your account page. There you can click on the "Invite Now" button and enter the email of the person you'd like to invite.

If you are on the BUSINESS or CORPORATE plan, you can invite users in the same way. Additionally you can click on the "Manage Users" option in the dropdown menu at the upper right of the navigation bar and add bulk employees/users by clicking the add_circle at the lower right of the page. They will be sent invitations immediately. After they accept, they will set their username and password and will have access to all the company resources you have made shareable.

deleting

Delete resources

You can delete any resource by clicking edit edit then clicking delete. This action cannot be undone.

private resources

What does public or private mean?

When you select 'public' on any resource it will be visible on your public profile page.

Difference between 'public' and 'shareable'

While public makes the resource visible on your profile page, 'shareable' makes the resource available to share between users. When you click on the share controls to send your resources to another user, you are only sending the items you have previously marked as shareable. This is especially important for BUSINESS and CORPORATE users. You may want to store many kinds of resources, including those you do not want other users/employees to see. By deselecting the share option on a resource it both keeps it our of the company's general resources and ensures that it will not be sent as a shareable item to anyone. The company owner/manager must also be sure the 'public' option is un-check to make sure those resources to not get posted on the company's public profile page.
