Managing tags in Benubird

Let’s start with the basics. What is a tag? According to Wikipedia:

A tag is a non-hierarchical keyword or term assigned to a piece of information (such as an internet bookmark, digital image, or computer file).

Tags have really taken off on the Web over the past few years, but they are still an underutilized tool on the desktop — which is odd — since they are such an effective and simple way of locating documents with just a couple of clicks. We’re trying to change this anomaly with Benubird and its powerful tagging features.

Getting Started

Tip: Open the Manage Tags window by clicking on Library Tags on the Home tab.

To help you get started we’ve added some example tags to Benubird so that you can begin tagging your files as quickly as possible. These example tags can be assigned to files, edited or deleted just like any other tag.

Add New Tags

To create new tags click on the Add button in the Manage Tags window, enter in the name of your tag (if you’re adding multiple tags then click on the Add Multiple button), and click OK. The new tag(s) should now be shown in the tags list.

Edit Tags

To edit a tag select it in the tags list and click on the Edit button or double-click on the tag. Editing a tag in the Manage Tags window will mean that all references to that tag in Benubird will also be updated.

Delete Tags

To delete a tag select it in the tags list and click on the Delete button. Deleting a tag in the Manage Tags window removes it from all files in Benubird.

Import and Export Tags

We want to make using Benubird an easy and ‘headache-free’ experience, that’s why we have included a handy feature that allows you to Import and Export a list of tags from and to a CSV file.

Importing tags is just a matter of creating a CSV file, adding each of your tags to a new line, clicking on the Import button, selecting the file and clicking OK.

Exporting tags is even easier, just click on Export, give your CSV file a name and click OK.

That’s it, pretty simple eh? In our next post we’ll show you how to assign the tags you’ve just created to files.
