← All Topics

Tags are a great way to add metadata into your lab notebook and improve search results. Tags can be used to build an internal vocabulary with other members of the notebookEvery entry in your Notebook can have one or more tag.

You can edit tags for an entry by hovering your mouse over that entry and clicking the tag icon. 

On the Edit Tags window, you can create, edit or delete tags. When you are finished, click “Close” 

Create or delete a tag 

To create a new tag type into the “Choose Tags” field and press enter to save. Your tag may include spaces and/or more than one word. You can delete the tag by clicking the X on the right side of the tag.  

Note: Avoid creating a tag with words like “A” or “do” because they can have unpredictable search results. For more information on stop words Click Here.

Add a Preexisting tag 

To view all pre-existing tags, click the “Choose Tags” field. This will display tags used in other parts of the notebook and used by other individuals in the notebook. To find a specific tag begin typing in the “Choose Tags” field. 


Once a tag has been added to an entry it will be listed on the right side. You can click on the tag to search for every entry associated by that tag. To learn more about the LabArchives search feature Click Here.
