What is Tagging?
Tagging is the ability for you, the user, to come up with your own specific way of organizing information. Tagging allows you to apply a "tag" on a meld request that allows it to be tracked/sorted. It's incredibly helpful to display tagged items on your dashboard to provide an alternate form of site navigation.
Here are some examples of tagging usage:
- Pending Owner Approval
- Owner Responsible
- Home Warranty
- Outstanding Bid
- Pending Resident Response
- Deferred Work
Keep it short. The longer the tags you create you greatly diminish your chances of reapplying the same tag elsewhere.
Keep it simple: Broader may work better for categories, but the more specific the better when it comes to tags.
Keep it organized: If you are creating a new tag, make sure you have other content that could be tagged the same way. This will allow you to better organize meld requests and track specific items.
Consider selecting key name “tags”: Use tag names that everyone will be associated with and can easily identify.
Less is more: To keep it short, simple and organized. Try to keep your tag amount under 10 TOTAL. Any more can result in confusion and inefficiency.
When NOT to use: Tags should be used in the event that there is no filtering item for. For example, you don't want to add a tag to track a vendor or a category as filtering already allows this. By using tags unnecessarily, the accuracy of data can decrease with extra human interaction.
