Categorizing communities with tags

A tag is a keyword that you assign to a community to categorize it and make it easy to find. Tag collections in Communities display the tags according to the view that you have currently selected.

You can choose how the tags in a tag collection are displayed: in a list or a cloud. A tag list displays the tags in a list starting with the most popular tags first. A tag cloud visualizes the popularity of the tags in the collection by grouping the tags together and displaying the most frequently used tags in larger, darker text and the tags that are used less often in smaller, lighter text.

A tag can be a single word only and cannot contain any spaces. It can contain characters such as an underscore (_) or at sign (@). For example, you can use follow_up, follow-up, and followup as tags, but not follow up.

The following table describes the tags that are associated with each view in Communities:
