Searching by Tags

Many of you have asked what the purpose of the Tag field is. This field is found in various data entry screens in Famundo such as events, lists, files, and photos. In fact, tagging is used in almost every area of Famundo. Think of a Tag as a “keyword” that will allow you to search for things with “like” tags in the future.
Famundo now supports searching of tagged events, so you can quickly view all events that contain a specific tag.
Let’s say, for example, that your child is required to complete a certain number of community service hours for their school. If, when you schedule the community service events, you add a tag “community” in the tag field, it will be very easy to locate all community service events in the future and add up the hours served.
Tags will “auto-complete”, so once you add a new tag it will appear the next time you start typing in the word in the tag field.
Tag searching will locate all events with a specific tag from 3 months in the past to 3 months in the future.
The tags are presented in what is called a “tag cloud,” which can be viewed by clicking on Tags on the top Calendar menu. The tags with the most items are represented with larger text in the beginning of the list and those with fewer items are represented with smaller text at the end of the list.
By the way, your family member’s names are also treated as tags, so if you want to find all events for a member of your family, just click on their name in the tag cloud.
In future releases of Famundo, you will be able to search on all items, events, files, lists, photos and more, with a common tag.
