A tag is a descriptive keyword that you assign to your profile to identify work activities, skills, or interests. If your system administrator has enabled it, you can also assign tags to other people's profiles.
The tags that you assign to your profile are displayed in the Tags
area on your My Profile page. Tags describe what you do and what you care about. When you create tags, use keywords that represent your interests or areas of expertise. Tags must be entered as a single word, or as multiple words connected with a hyphen or underscore. For example, payroll
, and human_resources
are all valid tags.
Publicize your skills
By assigning tags to your profile, you describe your skills, job role, interests, and education to others in your organization.
Click one of your own profile tags to quickly find other people who share your interest or are doing similar work. People with whom you share common tags are likely to be good resources for you. You can get their contact information from their profiles and begin collaborating with them.
Find out who has tagged you. Click the frequency number for a particular tag to display a list of the people who tagged you with that term. Click the frequency again to hide the information.
Define your connection
Tagging a colleague's profile can help remind you what your connection to a person is. For example, if you worked with them on a particular project, you might choose to tag them with the name of that project. When you tag someone else's profile, that tag is visible to anyone who views the profile. By tagging your own profile and other people's profiles, you make it easier for you and your colleagues to locate expertise in your organization.
You can view tags in a list or in a cloud. Click Cloud
at the bottom of the tags area to switch the display. The list view shows the top 10 tags and the cloud view shows the top 50 tags. You can quickly find experts in a specific area by browsing the tag cloud or list and clicking tags that interest you.
