Add a tag to an item

Tagging your items is a great way to categorize them and make it easy to search and find items that have the same tag. In particular, when you have potentially millions of items in an item bucket, using tags can be the quickest way to find your items.


To search for items with a specific tag, you can use the search filter Search by Tag in the Sitecore search functionality.
