Tags and Tracks are useful tools to help with the organization of your event. The organizer can choose various topics related to your event and create tags for Attendees, Speakers, Sponsors, as well as Tracks for Activities, in order to categorize them.
How do I create a tag/track?
Tag - Manually
To create a tag, go to Settings > Tags. Then in the top left corner, press +New tag.
Then, you will see a new window for you to type in the tag name and its color.
When it comes to the tag type, you can choose from these categories:
Regarding the tag visibility, if you set it to Yes, the tag will be visible to all attendees. If you set it to No, it will only be visible to admins and thus invisible to the event participants.
Once you have set the fields, click Create.
Track - Manually
To create a track, go to Agenda > Tracks. Then on the left corner click on +New Track
Regarding the track visibility, if you set it to Yes, the track will be visible to all attendees. If you set it to No, it will only be visible to admins and thus invisible to the event participants.
Once you have set the fields, click Create.
Importing a spreadsheet - Tags and Tracks
You can also import a spreadsheet list with your tags and tracks to the platform.
To do so, simply click on Edit > Import > Download demo file. Then fill out the file and upload it back to the platform by clicking on the green file button and then on Import.
When adding your tags and tracks through the spreadsheet, you will see three columns:
Under Name, add up to 100 characters when filling out the spreadsheet. If you add more, tag/track names will be displayed incomplete on the platform.
Under Color, make sure to add the hashtag (#) to the hex code otherwise it will not work.
Under Type, instead of using Person, Activity, Speaker, or Sponsor, you should use the following numbers to fill out the tags type column:
- Add 1 to activities
- Add 3 to attendees
- Add 4 to speakers
- Add 5 to sponsors

The users will be able to select more than one track at a time. To unselect a tag, simply click on it one more time.
The users can use the tag icon by the activity as a filter as well just by clicking on its tag, as it shows in the image below.
It is also possible to filter activities in My Agenda tab as displayed in the gif below:
