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. By using Tags and filtering by Tags you can organize your Projects individually and your Project Feed to display only the images you need at the time. There are two ways to view tags in Projects:

To show All Tags within the Project, open the Project > click on View > and then toggle On Show Tags (this option will be black when On).

Another option, you'll be able to filter by specific Tags within a Project, to do this open the Project > click on Tags > search or select the Tags you'd like to filter by.

Filtering by Tags will only display photos with that specific Tag. To filter from the Photo Feed, you'll want to click on Photos on the left sidebar > click on the Tags option > search or select the Tag(s) you'd like to filter by. You can also filter by date range, Projects, Users, and Groups.

For example: When the Tag "before" is selected, photos with that Tag will only be visible.

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.
