Tagging allows you to group contacts and locate them quickly and easily at a later date. You can also use "Tags" to identify groups of contacts you want to treat differently, i.e., dream clients, holiday cards, existing clients, bid clients, etc. In this article, you will learn how to utilize "Tags" in the Creative Directory.
Tagging Individual Contacts
Once you have identified a contact you want to tag, select the three-dot menu on the contact table's right-hand column. Within this menu, select "Manage Tags" to start the process of adding this contact to a tag.
Once you choose the "Manage Tags" selection, the "Choose Tags" modal will open up. Within the "Create a new tag" area, type out the name of the tag you want to create and select the green plus-circle; this will create the tag with a blue check box. Continue by clicking the "Save" button on the modal's bottom-left corner; this action will add the contact to the Tag. You should see a little confirmation bubble show up in the bottom right-hand corner of the page, confirming this contact has been added to the selected Tag.
To ensure the contact was added to the correct Tag, navigate to the "Tags" filter and check off the Tag you added the contact to. The contact you added should come up in the results.
Tagging Multiple Contacts
You can also check off multiple contacts you want to add to a specific Tag simultaneously. Check each contact off on the left-hand side of the results table and navigate down to the "Add to List" button; this is what we reference as a split button; there is another menu item behind the button. Select the down arrow on the right side of the button to pull up the "Manage Tags" selection and select it.
The "Choose Tags" modal will open up, allowing you to check off the Tag(s) you want to associate with your selections. You can check one Tag or multiple Tags during this step. After you checked off the Tag(s) you want, select the "Save" button to record your selections.
If you want to see what tags a contact has associated with the record or manage tags for a specific record, you can follow these steps. Click the three-dot menu on the contact record you want to review. From there, select the "View Contact" options; this will bring you to the "Contact Details" page.
You can select "Tags" underneath the contact records name and title from the Contact Details page. From here, you can see what Tags are associated with the contact you are viewing. If there were no Tags associated with the contact, you would not see the "Tags" option show up.
You can also choose to edit this contact record. Once you select the "Edit Contact" button, a modal will open up under the contacts title. In this modal, you can choose "Tags" and manage the options for this contact.
