Save and Share Favorite Programs

Overview

In the ever-changing world of social services, resource guides can quickly become outdated, even though you want to refer to the programs you like again and again. Use Favorites to create lists of regularly used programs for you and colleagues, or even create reference guides for your community that are easy to access and always up to date! 

 

How it Works

To create a Favorites folder, first search for a program that you'd like to save. Once you find a program you like, locate the "Save" button on the program card.

From here, choose "Create a new folder", or add the program to an existing folder, and click "Save".

  • Example: Austin Housing Programs or Austin Counseling Programs

Note, once you create a folder, it will appear in the dropdown menu going forward

 

Alternatively, you can select the check box next to the program name. This allows you to select multiple programs across multiple pages.

When you're ready, choose the programs you selected at the bottom of the screen.
