Manage community and knowledge base tags

You can add tags to community topics or knowledge base articles to organize and manage your support workflows. Here we'll talk about setting up and working with tags.

Go to Manage > Tags to open up the tag manager. Here's what you can do there:

  • Create new tags
  • Edit tag name
  • Change tag color
  • Merge multiple tags into one
  • Search for topics by tag(s)
  • Delete tags
  • Sort tags

There are two sets of tags: Ticket Tags and Community Tags (Knowledge Base tags are shown here, too). They are not related. Even if your ticket and community/KB tags have identical names, editing/merging/deleting one tag will not affect the other. This is because ticket tags are strictly internal and would never be shown to your customers, while tags for community and knowledge base can be public or internal depending on your user portal settings. If you're interested in working with ticket tags, check this article instead: Manage ticket tags
