Tags are metadata assigned to submissions, that are entirely customizable! You can assign any tag to any number of submissions, and then filter for all submissions that have this tag.
Tags are commonly used to indicate the stage of a submission in a workflow: "Processed", "Pending", "Received".
Tags can also just be used as categories, e.g. "Research", "Proposal", "Request" or "History", "Modernism", "Art" etc.

1. From the Submissions menu select one or more submissions then select Bulk Action
2. Select Tag submissions
3. In the Bulk assign tags modal window type in desired name of tag then select ADD TAG
4. Select Modify Tags for # of Submissions
5. You will then be able to query submissions with the use of Tags
