Follow these simple steps to add your organization as an item to facilitate its discovery.

Step 1 – Sign in to your organization, and open your organization’s home page.

Step 2 – Copy your organization home page URL.

Step 3 – Go to Content and click Add Item, then choose From the web.

Step 5 -Select Document as the type.

Step 6 – Paste the URL from step 2 in URL:

Step 7 – Add a Title and Tags.

Step 8 – Click Add Item.

Step 9 – Complete the item summary and description, add a thumbnail, and most importantly, Share the item publicly.

Your organization home page can now be discovered via search, making it easier for others to find and use.
