Using Tags

Tags add an extra (optional) layer of organization to your 3Play Media Account. Files may be tagged with one or more tags and quickly filtered within a folder or across all folders.

For example, in a folder containing all videos from a college course, all 4 videos that are part of lecture 1 could be tagged with “Lecture 1”. This would allow for quickly identifying any file within the course folder that contains that tag.

Tags can also be helpful in allowing for smoother collaboration between multiple users of a project by adding a tag for a task and the person responsible for completing the tagged task. For example, you could have an internal workflow so that Bob knows that whenever Bob logs in, he should first filter for files that contain the tags "Bob" and "Translate French" and that he should then submit all files with these tags for French translation. Once Bob has submitted the files for translation he could then remove the tags "Bob" and "Translate French", create the tags "Jean"  and "Review French", and then add them to those files so that when Jean logs in she knows the files tagged with her name and "Review French" are ready for her to work on.
