What are Tags Calibrate?
A Tag in Calibrate is like a tag in any other software. It’s a keyword or term, assigned to some item, that helps describe that item and allows it to be found again by searching.
Where are Tags used in Calibrate?
Tags can be added to any Job Profile, Job Profile Cluster, Course or Award. For each of these items, you'll see a Tags section at the bottom of the Details page. Here you can add Tags, remove Tags and see what Tags have already been assigned to that item.
How are Tags used in Calibrate?
Tags are used in searching to find items that all have the same Tag, which means they all have that property in common. Here are some common use cases for Tags.
- Occupation Job Profiles, Courses and Awards that all lead to the same occupation could have the same Tag such as finance or engineer.
- Region Job Profiles that are only applicable in certain regions or locations could be tagged as such.
- Campus Course and Awards that are only offered at certain campuses could be tagged with that campus.
What are some best practices for using Tags in Calibrate?
When creating a new Job Profile, Job Profile Cluster, Course or Award, it's a good idea to add a Tag or two—some property that is unique to the item you're creating.
Tags should be generic and short. Less than 25 characters is best.
NOTE: You cannot "nest" Tags. They all stand alone as unique Tags.
NOTE: You can only tag an item when it’s in the Draft state. If it’s in the Published state, you’ll have to create a new revision to add Tags.
NOTE: When you delete a Tag, you delete it everywhere. Delete Tags with caution.
