How to add Tags to your Schedule

  • Updated

Tags are labels or filters used to sort booths and sessions according to categories, so attendees can quickly navigate through the content available in your event.

Tags are available for Sessions, the Expo Booths and can be applied to the Schedule as well. They are especially useful when you have a large number of expo booths and or sessions, which will help your attendees sort through content quickly. 

Tags added to the Schedule will appear on the Schedule and attendees will be able to filter the segments by tags:

Note: There are no limits on the amount of tags you can add to schedules, but there is a 200 tag limit for the entire event.
Note: Tags that are created in any specific area (Expo for example) will also appear across the three event areas (Sessions, Expo, Schedule) not just the Expo.

To add tags, go to your Event Dashboard > Venue > Schedule page and select either Table or Calendar view.

  • Create a new schedule item by clicking + Quick add new, type in a segment name, and hit enter. Alternatively, locate a Schedule segment you'd like to edit.

    Scroll to the right to find the Tags column. Click the + and type in your tag.

    If the tag exists already, you can select it. Otherwise, you can click + Create "tag."

    To remove a tag from the Schedule, simply uncheck the tag.
  • Create a new schedule using the Add to Schedule button or select the schedule you want to add tags to and click directly on it, or on the 3 dots to Edit.

    Under the Tags section, type in the tag and select it if it already exists in your tags. If not, simply hit Enter on your keyboard or the Add button to create the new tag.

    To remove a tag from the Schedule, click the X icon in the Tags section.

    Once you're ready simply press the Add to schedule or Save button at the bottom of the page to save the changes.

Note: Tags will take about 60 minutes to completely disappear from the event sections. For example, if one tag is removed from a session it will still appear in the Sessions main area under the Search sessions bar, the same applies to the Expo area and Schedule, however after 60 minutes the tags will disappear. If wanting to remove all tags from the event it can be done the same way, by going to each Session, Expo Booth, and Scheduled item, remove all the tags, then wait 60 minutes for them to disappear completely.
Tip: If only wanting to update one tag with a new one or delete all tags and have new tags instead, simply remove the tag (or all tags) and add the desired new tags; this way tags will be immediately updated on all event sections, no need to wait for 60 minutes.
