SHORTSTACK DOCS

Organizing with Tags

updated Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Overview

Tagging is available on the Short Stack plan and higher.

When you have more than one page of apps, templates, media files or databases, you might find it helpful to organize them with tags. You can add any number of tags to an item. The Apps Manager, Media Manager, Templates Manager, and Forms & Promos Manager each have a tag cloud allowing you to create tags and filter items by one or more tags.

Adding Tags

To add a tag:

  1. Click the gray Tag button under the item name.
  2. Type the name of the tag into the field.
    • Separate multiple tags with commas; words separated with spaces will create a singe tag phrase, not multiple tags.
  3. Press the ENTER key to save.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 to create additional tags.
  • For faster tagging, click quick add to show an input box for all items on the page at once.

Deleting Tags

To delete a tag:

  1. Hover your mouse over the below the item name.
  2. Click the small red x that appears to the right.

Browsing Tags

To find/filter items by tags:

  1. Click Browse Tags to expand the tag menu and show the tag cloud.
  2. Click a tag to display only items with that tag.
  3. To remove a tag from the filter, click the blue tag (next to Items Found), or click View All to clear the filter and view all items.

Renaming Tags

To rename a tag:

  1. Click Browse Tags to expand the tag menu and show the tag cloud.
  2. Click the Rename Tags link in the upper right corner of the cloud.
  3. Click a tag to switch that tag to edit mode.
  4. Type in the new value and press ENTER to save, or click outside the box to cancel.
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 to rename other tags.
  6. Click Done Renaming to switch back to Browse mode.

When you rename a tag in one view, it renames the same tag in other views, too. For example, if you have an app and several media files tagged with “client” and you rename the tag in the Apps Manager to “projects,” then the media files that were tagged with “client” also will be renamed to “projects.”
