What is a Tag?
A Tag is similar to a Twitter hashtag: it’s a tool used to label messages that pertain to the same conversation topic. It’s useful for grouping important information to make it easier to find later.
Unlike a Twitter hashtag, Tags belong to specific Topics. You can only filter Topics by the Tags that belong to them, and only Topic Members have access to its Tags.
You and your team members can see Tags easily by selecting the hashtag (#) icon on the top right.
How do I create a Tag?
To create a Tag, check the box to the left of the messages you want to be included in the Tag. At the top of the app screen, click the tab labeled "Add # messages to." Type the name you want to assign to that Tag in the "Create a new Tag" text box and press Enter/Return.
Please see How do I add and remove a messages from a Tag? to update messages in a tag.
These tags are not just for use within the application. You can also share your tag on other platforms by copying the Tag link.
Copy the Tag Link by right-clicking on the Tag.
But remember, since Tags belong to specific Topics, only Topic Members will be able to see the Tags.
Tags can be posted to Backlog comments or the Wiki by pasting their unique Tag URL.Tags can also be embedded within Backlog issues.
Please see Linking Typetalk Tags and Backlog Issues for more information on how to do this.
