One of the ways to improve the findability of content in Jive is to add tags, especially if the author has not included specific keywords as tags that people are likely to use when searching for that content. But users who are not system administrators can't edit tags on content they did not author (except for documents).
Here's a simple hack that gets around this and allows users to add tags to content they did not author: add a comment on the item and insert inline tags in it. These tags affect the search results for the original content item. Since people may not be familiar with how to create inline tags, here are quick instructions.
To add tags to content that you can't edit (everything except documents), add a comment on that item and insert tags in the comment. You can insert tags inline in text in Jive by typing # and then typing the tag. The trick is to let the list of suggested tags pop up and select the one you want, or else create a new one. You'll know you were successful when the # changes to a tag symbol. See, for example, these:

To create a new request, follow these steps:
Mentorships are structured around three 30-minute engagements (phone calls or virtual meetings). Mentors and mentees may wish to use the Mentorship Planning Framework.docx to help guide their conversation.
The first call is an opportunity to get to know your partner, identify a topic/goal, and discuss first steps forward. The second call provides both mentors and mentees a chance to reflect on their progress and dig deeper/course correct. The third and final meeting should be used to debrief on findings and define a plan for continued learning post mentorship.
The mentorship is officially over when participants have conducted all three calls and completed their respective post-mentorship surveys (below):
Should both parties desire to, mentors and mentees are encouraged to continue their conversations beyond the three meetings. Mentors can work with multiple mentees at one time and both mentors and mentees can participate as often as they'd like.

I’ve really enjoyed being your peer-to-peer community manager for Internal Communities.
Thank you Libby Taylor for giving me this wonderful opportunity to get more involved. I manage our Neo community, but it’s majority back end, which is something i’m hoping to change in 2017. This activity has allowed me to be a Community Manager for a community, i’ve contributed blogs to encourage conversations, i’ve helped colleagues with their questions, i’ve jumped on calls to troubleshoot issues and i’ve taken part in conversations about other communities and challenges they’re facing, so wonderful to see everyone comment and help each other out. It’s been a really valuable experience.
This isn’t the end, i’m still going to be popping into this community and helping out as much as i can. I’m looking forward to seeing who our next quarter's peer-to-peer community manager is.
