Organizations upload and manage content by using the Showpad Content Library. You, as an administrator, need to be able to pull up relevant and related content quickly. This can be done with the use of filters and more specifically with asset tags.
Asset tags are labels you can add to your content. These tags are used to categorize, manage, and find assets quickly. You can even use tags to automatically push assets into so-called Smart Folders and interactive Showpad Experiences.
You can use tags to categorize your content into sections going from broad to specific, which influences your searches and content analytics. They also play a key role in using Content Recommendations in Salesforce.
In case you're using divisions, it is important to know that tags are added separately and are not transferred automatically to all divisions. In short, you'll need to create tags in each division.
See how it works
- Tags are used to label and categorize your assets
- Use tags to create dynamic smart folders and experiences
- Users can use tags to do advanced searching
- Tags are important for using Content Recommendations in Salesforce
- Create filters in reports to give you specific Content Analytics
- When creating filters, we allow using up to 25 tags
- Local tags are tags you created yourself
- External tags are tags automatically created by an integration (for example, Sharepoint)
- Examples of tags are:
- Type of document (i.e. spreadsheet)
- Language (i.e. English)
- Product range (i.e. tablet)
- Sales stages (i.e. prospect)
