Tag App Records

What is tagging?

Tagging is available for the Blog, Headlines & Features, Podcast, Premium Video, and Tabbed Content apps. You add tags to individual records that are used to filter which records display on the end-user website. You can display the tags as clickable links or simply display the filtered records without displaying the tags. The way you tag an individual record is the same.
