Tagging Devices and Layouts

Tagging devices and layouts facilitates online management of large installations. It provides a helpful way to sort, manage, and schedule devices and layouts with a high degree of control over content being sent to individual or groups of devices. Tags are similar to, but more specific than groups and are generally used to describe and manage devices and layouts with more granularity. Tag-based configuration is also more powerful than groups because a single device/layout can have more than one tag. Tag-based configuration allows devices to essentially be in more than one group.

After devices and layouts are tagged, you can filter by tags to view, edit, or schedule only devices and layouts that share selected tags. This is useful to narrow and manage long lists of devices/layouts and also makes it easier to locate devices/layouts in large installations. (See Viewing and Managing Devices and Using the Layouts Screen in the User's Guide)
