Adding Tags to a Job

You can add free-form text tags to jobs as a way of identifying jobs that have something in common. These tags are used to filter the Jobs List to include only jobs of a particular type.

Tags are defined from the Tags tab of the main platform interface (outside the Dispatch screen).

To add a tag to a job:

1.Use the date control in the upper left corner of the Jobs List panel to select the date of a job. You can also change day using the left and right arrows to move ahead or back one day at a time:

If the list of jobs is long, use the search control or the status filter to show only jobs of a particular type. Click the control beside Jobs:, and then choose a status from the menu.
2.Click the highlighted name of the job you want to edit in the list, or right-click and select Edit from the contextual menu. The Edit Job dialog box opens:

3.Click the Tags tab:

4.Type a tag name into the central text field. As you type, a dialog box appears listing all the currently-defined tags that match the string you have entered. Select the desired tag from the list. Repeat as many times as needed to add more tags. Selected tags appear on the Tags tab as gray boxes. To remove a previously selected tag from the job, click the "X" that appears in the upper right corner of the gray rectangle for the tag.

5.Click the Save button. The job tags are saved.
