You can create and manage the agenda session tags that can be associated to sessions in the agenda. This is done via the Sessions module, in the Tags tab:
Tags are used to characterize sessions, and can be used for filtering or grouping sessions based on a theme or topic. They are used by participants in the app to easily find the sessions that they are interested in via their agenda, and are particularly helpful when a user's agenda contains a large number of sessions:
Tags can be targeted, in order to decide exactly which participants will be able to see and use specific tags in the event.
Tags can also be grouped into overarching categories that are visible in the app. A maximum of four tags are visible at a given time to partipants for each tag group. Participants will need to select Show all in the app to see all the tags displayed.
Accessing the list of tags in the workspace
Any existing tags in the workspace are listed in the Tags tab, like in the below example:
In the tag list, you can see the tag name, how it will look (the tag's background color and text color), as well as the ID associated to the tag in Backstage.
Clicking on an existing tag in the list will open the tag information page. More information on the tag information is available in the Creating or editing a tag section below.
From the tag list, you can also create a new tag, using the New tag button, or export or import tags via a spreadsheet using the Export XLS or Import XLS buttons
Creating or editing a tag
Tags in the event will by default appear to the right of the agenda sessions in the app, where participants can select them to filter the sessions that will be displayed:
To create a new session tag, click on the New tag button. You can also edit an existing tag by selecting it in the tags list. The below tag information can be added or edited:
This is the ID in Backstage for the tag. You can choose your own ID, like in the example above, or let Backstage create an ID automatically.
This is the name of the tag, and the text that will be displayed in the tag when seen in the app.
By using the pipe "|" symbol in the tag name, you can create and associate the tag to a tag group.
This is the tag background color that will be used.
This is the tag text color. In this example, it is the color that the text "Topic 🤖" will be displayed with.
Tags can be targeted to allow you to decide which participants will be able to see the tag in the app. More information on using targeting is available in the Targeting article.
Tags can be grouped into overarching categories that are visible in the app.
For example, a tag group "Contacts" could contain a number of tags that pertain to sessions that may help participants to make new contacts at the event, such as Braindate and Networking in the below example:
To do this, use the tag Name field.
Here we have created the tag group called Contacts, and added the tags Braindate and Networking, using Contacts | Braindate or Contacts | Networking as the tag name:
Grouped tags are recognizable in the tag list as follows:
