How do I use tag lists in an ePortfolio collection?

You can link a tag list to a collection that you have created in your ePortfolio. A tag list is a listing of one or more tags that are representative for that collection. All items in your ePortfolio that are tagged from a tag list of a collection, are automatically placed in this collection.

A collection can also have tags, but this is something different than having a tag list. A tag list is used to automatically put other documents in the collection folder, whereas a tag to a collection is used to organize the collection itself.

  1. Click the My Items tab.
  2. Click on the arrow next to the collection in which you want to add a tag list.
  3. Click Edit.

Scroll to the bottom until you see the Items in Collection heading.

  1. Click Add to Collection.
  2. Click on Tag List.

The following screen will appear:

  1. Enter the name of the Tag List here.
  2. Type the name of the tag here.
  3. Click Add Tag to add the tag.
  4. Click Save if all tags have been added to the tag list.
  • A collection can contain multiple tags.
  • A tag can be put into multiple tag lists.
  • In a collection with a tag list that consists of multiple tags, only the items that have all tags from the list assigned will be placed in that collection.
    For example: a tag list of a collection contains the tags green, blue and yellow. Only an item with both the green, blue, and yellow tag is automatically placed in this collection.
  • Do you want to have multiple individual tags in a collection? Then add multiple tags lists.
    For example: a Collection contains a tag list with tag blue, a taglist with tag yellow and a taglist with tag red. Any item with the tag yellow and/or blue and/or red is automatically placed in this collection.
