Create a page from Tags

Tags are keywords that are added to artefacts, pages and collections to make it easier to find related items. For detailed instructions on adding content (artefacts), pages and other items that can be tagged, please see the relevant guides.

This guide explains how to use tags to populate a page automatically. When a page is created using this process, it will automatically include files, text, notes, plans and tasks, journals and journal entries that match the chosen tags. These can be rearranged later to suit requirements. Items tagged later are not added automatically.

  1. Click on the main menu icon, expand the Create section, and select Pages and Collections, or click on Create on the Dashboard.
  2. Click on Add, and select Page.
  3. Add a page title and description.
  4. Locate the Create via tags search box.
  5. Start typing a word to add a tag and a drop-down menu will open listing matching tags.
  6. Select the tag to be added. The number after the tag indicates how many times the tag has been used.
  7. Select a layout if you want to set a specific layout for this page at the point of creation. The page will be added with 3 columns by default unless amended.
  8. Click save to create the page.

The page will be created with all the existing artefacts and blocks with the chosen tags. Some artefacts will be combined when added e.g. images will be added to an image gallery; PDFs, audio, documents will be added to a Files to download block.

Edit the page to change the layout and to move blocks around.
