Tags allow you to assign one or several keywords to contacts and calendar events. Tags are shared by both applications.

On this page:



Calendar events can be tagged in the Information tab of the event creation form:

NB: the screenshots below belong to the Contacts application, but the Calendar works similarly.

There are several ways to add tags:

  • Existing tags are shown in a drop-down menu. To select a tag, click the arrow at the end of the text box to display the list:
  • Type a word.
    • If there is no existing tag for this word, click "Enter" to validate it or click "Create tag":
    • If a tag already exists, (from other users or events for example, or via the settings manager) autocomplete suggests words as you type:

Once set, new tags are assigned a color and an "x" is displayed next to them to delete them. Existing tags are marked with the same color as everywhere else they are used. New tags are assigned a color that hasn't been used yet:

You can add as many tags as you want:

To delete a tag, click the "x" next to it or use the delete key (<backspace>) on your keyboard.

Tags can be seen in the contacts list as color icons (2 maximum). When you hover over them, the list of tags assigned to the contact appears:

Similarly, in Calendar, tagged events are marked with a color icon:

Managing tags

Domain tags are managed similarly by the administrator in the admin console > System management > Managed Domains > domain > "Tags"
see the Administrator's Guide - Domaines - chapître 7 : Les étiquettes

Tags can be managed in user settings > "My account" > "Tags" tab

Shared tags, created by the domain administrator, cannot be edited. They are shown in bold with a lock next to them at the top of the list.

Creating a new tag 

  • Type a name.
  • Choose a color (by default, an unassigned color is suggested).
  • Click Add. 

Modifying tags 

  • When you hover over the text, the editing text box appear:

    • To change tag wording, click the text box to enable it and type the new text. 
    • To change tag color, click the colored dot and select a new one from the color palette:
  • Once these modifications have been made, leave the box to confirm: using the <tab> key, or using your mouse by clicking elsewhere in the page

    Note: Changes are effective immediately. You don't have to click "Save" at the bottom of the page.

Deleting tags 

To delete a tag, click  at the end of the row and click OK to confirm.

Once confirmed, deletion is immediate and irreversible.

  • several tags can be selected simultaneously: events bearing one or the other will be displayed
  • click a tag again to unselect it 
  • when all tags are unselected, the display is reset: all events are shown and all tags are shown in black.
  • No labels
