As you and others add tags to items, entries, and profiles, the tags are automatically added to an organization-wide collection of tags. You can click a tag from the tag collection to find information related to it.
The tag collection displays the tags assigned to items available to you in the current context. When you are looking at a list of your activities, for example, the tag collection displays the tags assigned to each activity. When you open one of the activities, the collection changes to display the tags assigned to the entries within that activity. The tag collection only displays the tags associated with items or entries to which you have access.
The tag collection is refreshed periodically; it can take up to 20 minutes for tag changes to be displayed. Therefore, when you add a tag to an item, you might not see it listed in the tag collection immediately.
Changing the display
You can select to display the tags in the collection in either of the following ways:
A tag cloud visualizes the popularity of the tags in the collection by grouping the tags together and displaying the most frequently used tags in larger, darker text and less often used tags in smaller, lighter text. The tag cloud displays up to 50 tags.List
A tag list displays the tags in a list starting with the most popular tags at the top. This style collection displays only the 10 most popular tags.
Using the tag collection
To find an item, such as an activity or blog entry by tag, complete the following steps:
- Open the view that contains the type of items that you want to find.
- Click a tag from the tag collection.
This action limits the number of items that are displayed to include only those that have the selected tag associated with them.
- To narrow the list further, click another tag from the Related Tags section.
This action filters the list of items that are displayed to include only those that have both tags associated with them.
To return to the full collection, click the current view or tab link.
Searching for a specific tag
If you are looking for a tag that is not displayed in the collection, search for it by clicking Find a tag
, entering the tag name in the search field, and then clicking the search icon.
This feature is not available in all tag collections. For example, you cannot search for a specific tag from the tag cloud on the Search results page.
