Multi-Tag Edit

Problem

When managing tags in your system, you may encounter situations where several tags share identical fields. Previously, updating the value of a field for multiple tags required manual editing of each tag individually, which was particularly cumbersome for list items intended for uniform tracking across tags. This process was not only time-consuming but also prone to inconsistencies.

Our Solution

With the Multi-Tag Edit on the JENTIS Tag Manager, users can update multiple tags simultaneously, significantly saving time and ensuring uniform field values across different tags.

    • grouped fields Screenshot 2024-05-21 at 16.40.31.png

    • list fields Screenshot 2024-05-21 at 16.40.09.png

Check here how to edit each type of field.

  1. You have several options for customizing the data you input into these fields:

    1. Variables: Choose from four types of variables to insert into your fields.

    2. Text Inclusion: Opt to include plain text if variable functionality is not required.

    3. Function Wrapping: For more complex data manipulation, you can wrap variables with a function to perform specific operations or calculations.

      This flexible approach allows you to tailor the data entry process to meet the specific requirements of your tagging system efficiently.

  1. When your adjustments are complete and you are satisfied with the setup, click on the "Update Tags" button. This action ensures that only the fields you have selected are updated across the corresponding tags, maintaining accuracy and consistency in your tag management.

  2. Once you save the changes, you can go back to all your tags, order by edited date and check the latest ones that were changed. You can also click on the three dots, then “change log” and see exactly which values were changed in that tag.
