What are tags and how are they used?
Tags specify information or themes about an event other than the type of activity or hosting organization. With tags, organizers can better categorize their events, and volunteers can filter event feeds by the labels most important to them.
You can find tags linked and interspersed throughout different parts of your organization's event feed.
When you filter your organization's event feed by tag(s), it creates a unique URL that you can use in targeted volunteer recruitment.
Volunteers can also see the tag(s) associated with an event on its sign-up page. Tags are clickable and will redirect you back to the event feed as a filtered page.
Add tags to an event
As an Organizer, can add tags to events you are hosting or events created through an Event Campaign you moderate. You cannot add tags to other events hosted by your organization.
When adding tags, you will be able to see all tags used across the Mobilize platform. However, the event tags used most by your organization will appear at the top of your list. Because all tags are visible to all dashboards, it is not possible to delete a tag.
Note: Tags are case sensitive!
