The Tag field allows members to quickly categorize records to easily group, sort, filter, and save views on records without adding rigid category fields. Tag values can be added dynamically by members, matching descriptors with record content.
Adding a Tag field
Customizing the field
Tag field values are added by members and can be managed - modified, added, deleted - by Solution Managers. Tag field values can be set to:
Private - tag values are available within a single SmartSuite solution
Public - tag values are available across all solutions in a SmartSuite workspace
Tags are displayed in gray pills with a preceding # in all views and within open records. Solution Managers can:
Add initial tag values when configuring fields
Adjust the display order of tag values
Delete tag values
Set tags to Private (default) or Public
Mark as required
Solution Managers will find an additional control option to "Manage Tags" when engaging the "..." menu on tag fields in open records.
Examples of Use
Use private tag values for specific purpose solutions such as the Restaurant Management solution above or the Real Estate Transaction Management solution below.
Use public tag values for related processes or workflow that span solutions. For example, you may have multiple marketing solutions - Content Marketing, Marketing Campaigns, Product Marketing Management, etc. - where it makes sense to have common tag values.
Convert Tag Fields to Single or Multiple Select Fields
Tag fields can be converted to text fields (Text, Text Area, and SmartDocs) and Single or Multiple Select fields.
