Before you start
- To manage Tags you need to have the Admin or Manager role. If you don't have that role, ask an Admin on your company's account for permission; here's what they'll need.
Folders vs. Tags
Many software systems utilize folders to organize content. Folders allow you to visually put the pictures away, but with folders, you are forced to choose only one category for each photo.
Tags allow you to categorize your photos in multiple ways, making it easier to find exactly what you're looking for.
Example Using Tags & Filters
When you open a project, you can see every photo taken at this project, nothing is hidden.
Click Filter to quickly see photos from a specific date. You can also filter by date range and/or by user.You can see ONLY the Installation photos at this project when you choose: Filter > Tag > Installation.
Now to locate the photos that 'Need Finished'. You can choose: Filter > Tag > Needs Finished. Now you can see every photo that 'Needs Finished' even though these same photos were also categorized as 'Installation' (or any other Tags).
Now that you've gotten the hang of using Tags, the next step is understanding how to use Project Labels on the Web and Mobile App. Also, read more on how you can use Tags and Labels together to level up your organization.
