A tag is a word or phrase you can apply to a social media post to make it easier to hunt down and track later. They can save you a ton of time. But don't take our word for it. Experiment with them and see for yourself.

ActionSprout makes it easy to add any tags that could be helpful to you and your team... emphasis on you and your team. Your supporters can't see these tags, and they don't influence who sees your posts either. They're completely for your internal use.

Ready to give it a go?

How to apply a tag

To get started, log into ActionSprout and select the Facebook page you'd like to work with from the Accounts screen. 

Then open the Social Actions section of your account. 

Next to each action that you and your team have created you'll see a Tags option. By default, each action will start with a single tag listed, which is the type of social action it is. To create your own tag(s) click Edit Tags.

Now type in the tag you'd like to apply and hit Enter. To add more tags, simply click Edit Tags again. To delete tags, click the X next to the tag.

Once your tagging is complete, click on a tag to view only the actions that have that tag. This is a quick and easy way to sort and organize a long history of actions by subject, campaign, project, etc.

Tags are also visible and editable inside the Edit Action and Metrics screens. 

Work-flow solutions

What are some ways that tags can help streamline work flow and make your life easier? Here are just a few ideas:

  • Use tags to assign staff members to certain actions. Now when Jessica logs in, she can click on her tag and see just the actions she's working on.
  • Use tags to label whether actions need review or are approved.
  • Use tags to label which actions need to be reposted.
  • Use tags as notes to yourself.

The possibilities are endless really Tags are completely open-ended, too, with no maximum number to limit you. So go crazy and get organized!
