People Tags allow you to label your people with attributes or skills that you can use to schedule people and create teams.

What are Tags, Teams, and Tag Teams?

When it comes to People tags, it is helpful to understand the difference between Tags and Teams.

Tags are a universal attribute or skill that can be applied to the person in general. For example, Jenn plays the piano. When you filter by the Piano tag, you'll see everyone in your entire account that plays piano.

Teams are more specific and allow you to specify where she plays the piano. Jenn plays piano in the High School band so she is assigned to that team.

Tag Teams are a special type of Team whose members cannot be assigned, but instead consist of people with specific Tags. Tag Teams are mostly used when you have multiple Teams or Positions with the exact same members. Instead of assigning an Usher to all 3 door positions, assign him to one 'Usher' tag, and link each door position to that Tag. Then giving him 1 Tag assigns him to 3 positions.

Add or remove tags from everyone in your selection by typing the names of the tags in either the Add Tags or Remove Tags box.

When bulk editing tags, keep the following mind.

  • If you try to remove a Required Tag using Bulk Edit, it will not be removed if that is the only tag in that group.
  • If you try to assign a second Tag from a group that does not have Allow multiple selections, it will automatically replace any existing Tag in that group with your new selection.
