Content tags are used to organize, filter, and group content. Tags can be applied to all types of content such as images, videos, and even cards – from the library or when adding content directly to a channel.

Tagging content not only improves organization and content search capabilities but also allows playlist channels to automatically populate content based on the same tag, even when the content are in different folders.

This article provides instructions to add tags to content either from the Library or in a channel.
