    Tags are words or phrases that you can assign to items to help you organize and remember them. Because tags are shared with the community, users can see the tags that are assigned to items by other users. You can assign as many tags to an item as you want. In addition, the tags that you create and assign to items appear to all users on the Tags page.

    Tags Page

    From this page, users can search for tags, view the most popular and recently added tags, and display the list of records that have been tagged. The numbers in parentheses beside the tag names indicate how many records have been marked with the tag.

    Clicking the tag name in the Tag results, opens the results page, which displays a filled-out Advanced Search box and the list of tagged items. Users can then modify the search to find additional records. In the following example, only a single record had been tagged:
