Suggestions is a mix of TechRepublic content (including downloads, discussions, and blog posts) collected just for you.
rnYou don’t have to search for the TR content you like, we’ll serve up what you’ve told us you want.rn

Suggestions are based on the information you’ve provided in your Profile and any tags you’ve used when creating content on the site, like Links, discussion posts, or blog posts.
rn As you continue to interact with our Web site, your Suggestions will improve.rn
rnTo jumpstart the process, edit your Profile and add keywords in the Interests and Current Technology Implementation fields.rn

The Workspace History tab provides a look at the last few TechRepublic offerings you’ve accessed.
rnYou no longer have to try and remember where that great article was listed. Just check your History tab!rn

Projects allow you to build a more narrowly focused version of your TechRepublic Workspace by specifying tags that will filter content for you.
rnFor example, if you would like suggested content that relates only to VPN and security, set it up as a Project and view only those results. rn
rnAs you save Links to the Project, the tags associated with those items will be added to the Project tag field, to enhance the Suggestions you receive. You can edit the Project’s tag field at any time.rn

To create a new Project, click the Create Project button on the Workspace tab.
rnIn the resulting Add a New Project screen, add a title, description, and tags to get suggestions on a narrow topic.rn
