Using tags

Tags are keywords that you and others assign to content. Assigning tags to your content makes it easier for you and others to find later.

You can assign tags to new or existing content.

Tagging a status update

  • To tag a status update, type # followed by your tag.

For example, a status update of "Really enjoying that amazing #presentation about #XYZ customer" shows up in search results for "presentation" and "XYZ."

Tagging content

Adding tags when creating or editing content
You can add tags when you create content: Enter tags into Tags before you Post or Update.
Adding tags to published content
To add tags to existing content, click Edit Tags at the bottom of the content editor and add your tags. Then click anywhere outside of the field to save.
Adding tags in the content editor
You can also add tags on-the-fly as you're editing content. To do this, type # (or click # Tag) followed by your tag phrase into the content editor.
For example, if you're writing about your competitor's new corporate branding, you could say, "Company X is resorting to Comic Sans. #jumpingtheshark."

Tips for tagging

  • Consider using any existing tags that appear in the suggestion box. Existing tags are often assigned to related content, so it's good practice to use them.
  • Use an underscore between words, such as sales_report or employee_benefits.
    Note: If you are tagging content that is being moderated by an admin, your tags may not show up right away because content updates may need to be approved.
