What's the difference between subjects and terms?
Many features overlap between subjects and term Knowledge Maps, but each site has a different primary concern. Subjects focuses on topics and the ontological relationships between them. Terms focuses on the words themselves and their definitions.
- Browse Terms — To see all the terms in Mandala, open the Terms tab within the search flyout. You can open the flyout anywhere in Mandala by clicking the search icon in the top right corner.
