Enterprise CRM: Add New Tag Assignments
What Are Tags?
Tags are a way to associate information with Contact, Organization, and/or Lead records within CRM. They are a bit like Bio records but differ in several important ways.
Tag record names are free text fields, so you are able to name and categorize information using Tags in a slightly more flexible way than Bios records. However, this also comes at a cost of less available and less targeted fields to fill in.
Another important distinction is that Tag records are private, whereas Bios records are public to all Enterprise CRM users. When and how to use Tags will be determined by your internal business processes.
What Are My Privacy Options?
Tag is a record type that is private to your business unit. Any information within the Tag record is private to your business unit. Any record associations with the Tag are also private to your business unit.
Adding a New Tag Assignment
- Navigate to the parent record (Contact, Organization, etc.) that you'd like to add the Tag to.
- If you're making at Tag that you'd like to add to multiple records you can do this from the Tag Tab.
- From the record there are two ways to get to creating a New Tag Assignment:

- Further down on the page underneath the record Detail there is a Tag Assignments section of the page where there is a New Tag Assignment button that is able to the clicked.
