Hi team,

 

Apologies in advanced if this was not worded well. 

 

I've got news sections on my SharePoint page and filter it accordingly to the tag/category that I've set in the background. At the moment it's simple because each post is tagged with one category. However, to future proof and potentially bring together info from different sites, I've started tagging posts with multiple categories (screenshot attached). 

 

How do I create news sections that only show posts that are tagged with BOTH categories? 

 

I've tried adding multiple filters but ALL posts with those tags show up. 

 

Using the example screenshot:

1. I add a filter for 'Comms from HQ'

2. I add a filter for 'COVID-19'

3. What I want is only posts that have been tagged with BOTH those categories to show up (the only post that should show up is 'Update-12-days-in.aspx' 

4. What I am getting now is all posts tagged with 'Comms from HQ' and all posts tagged with 'COVID-19' showing up. 

 

Any advice would be appreciated and I am happy to discuss this further.

 

Thanks in advanced! :)

Hello @matthewhuang 

Here is the solution, but you may need to redo the categories.

Using two filters is like OR, not AND. Then you just need to use a different type of filter, like Page Property and use Contains word (in your case without any changes you can use "co" which is in COVID and COMMS)

But you may need to recategorize all the news to prevent any issue.

Hope this resolve your issue :)
