How to create and add tags in Playbooks

Tags label Plays and email templates with relevant identifying information. Once a Play or email template has been tagged, you can use those tags to search, filter, and sort through those files effortlessly. Tags allow you to organize each item into multiple categories, and there is no limit to the number of tags that you can add to a single Play or email template. Use tags that describe the audience, objective, or time frame of your initiative.

Why Use Tags?

Whenever you have multiple files, you can usually organize these with either folders or tags. Playbooks uses tags rather than folders since it allows you to have multiple categories and descriptors tied to one file. Tags allow you to have one master copy of Plays and email templates, so you only have to make updates in one place. Folders restrict you to only one label or require you to have multiple copies which can cause confusion or outdated content.

Tags are assigned to every piece of Playbooks content. These tags make finding specific Plays and email templates easier and include:

  • Created by User
  • Content Type (Play or Template)
  • Assigned Teams
  • Custom Tags
  • Deleted Status (Plays only)
