What is Tagging?

  • Tagging allows you to categorize your books so that you can more easily find them in Library or Search them (a tag can be used as a collection).
  • Tags that you have applied will appear in the My Tags column in your Library (in Details view).
  • Tags can be used in ways similar to information contained in other Columns of your Library, but they are created for your needs.
  • Below you can see a tag named Charts which shows when sorting Library on the My Tags column.



  • The resources do not have to be tagged individually as there is a way to tag multiple resource at the same time
  • You can apply more than one tag to a resource (notice above that some are tagged for Maps and Charts, etc). This is useful when a resource falls under multiple categories that you create.
  • To view all of your resources by Tag:
    1. Open your Library
    2. Click on the View button in the Library’s toolbar until you see column headings e.g. Title, Type, Author.
    3. Click on the column My Tags. (if you don’t see My Tags column, please view Available Columns in the detailed view)
  • Resources which are not tagged will appear under an (extended dash) category as shown below:



 

What is Tagging used for?

  • Viewing resources in the Library window by your grouping (categorizing).
  • Tagged resources can be used with several Logos tools as shown below:
    • Search
      a) Click the Resource menu.
      b) Select one of your tagged categories.



    • Text Comparison
      a) Click the Resource menu.
      b) Select one of your tagged categories.



    • Visual Filters
      a) Click the Resource menu.
      b) Select one of your tagged categories.



    • Collections
      a) Use your tags in Start with resources matching: to create a dynamic rule.
      b) This rule selects favorite bibles (tag Fav Bible) which are rated as greater than 3 stars.



      Refer to Collections wiki for Collection creation steps.

  • As you can see, the tagging feature can be very powerful and useful!

 

How do I Tag a book?

The numbered list below will provide an example on how to tag some study Bibles with a Tag named Study Bible.

  1. Open your Library using the Book icon in the top menu bar (open it in a floating window for better viewing).

  3. Click on Info (the ‘i’ with a circle around it).
  4. In the Find box enter a filter expression for better locating the books that you want (recommended).
  5. Click on a book that you want to tag (don’t click on the Title).
  6. In the Info pane, click on Add tag and enter Study Bible.
    You will get suggestions as you type so that you can apply an existing tag without typos.
