Working with tags

Tags are one of our main organizational structures and tagging is a great way to organize your content.

Tags are keywords that you can add to your content. By doing this you automatically attach your pages, images, etc. to these keywords. When you open a tag you get an overview of all attached entities.

Finding the right tagging convention

This is a simple but very powerful way to organize thoughts. Still, you need to find YOUR way of tagging your content. Our co-founder Steffen published some tips on tagging on Twitter. Feel free to follow them and find your system.

How to tag

Top-level tags

Now let's see you you can tag your content: Every entity in Capacities can be tagged. On a page you can for example add top-level tags right at the top. Just type the keyword and select from exiting ones or create a new one.

You can also create and add tags while writing by typing the # symbol. This opens a menu where you can search and create tags.

Based on the tagged content, Capacities calculates related tags and displays the most relevant ones at the top. This allows you to quickly navigate to related topics.
