How can I use tags to organize my tests?
Tags are an easy way to organize your email and page tests inside your Litmus account. Using tags is a bit like adding keywords or labels to tests to make them easy to search, label, sort and view.
Adding tags to your tests is easy. After clicking inside one of your email or page tests, just click the “Add tags” link on the right side of your screen, under the Publishing and Tags area.
You can add tags one at a time, either pressing Enter on your keyboard or the “Add this tag” button. After the tag is added, it will appear in the tags box with an “x” next to it.
Tags with static email address
You can also add tags with the static email address for your account. You can add the desired tags (separated by plus signs) to the end of your static address.
would add 'newsletter' and 'monthly' tags to your new email test.
To edit, modify, delete or add tags, simply click on the edit tags link. You can delete tags while in edit mode by clicking anywhere on the tag. Tags are saved as you go, so if you forget to click “Close” and navigate away from the page, all the tags you’ve entered will still be there.
Viewing tagged tests
Once you’ve created some tags, they will appear on the main Tests page under 'Browse by tags'. Tags are sorted by popularity first, and then by creation date. In other words, the tags that appear first in your list are those that have been used the most.
Tags are not case-sensitive. For example, if you add tags for “Spam Analysis” and “spam analysis” to the same test, your net result will be one tag for “Spam Analysis.”
Tags must contain at least one alphanumeric character, and we currently support the following characters in tags:
- spaces, hyphens, commas, apostrophes and quotes
Slashes, exclamation points and question marks are not currently supported and will be converted before they are added to your test.
If you enter “01/02/2011”, it will be changed to “01-02-2011”
If you type “Published! Do not delete” it will be changed to “Published Do not delete”
Tags will not appear on published tests, and users on shared accounts can add, edit and view tags on each other’s tests.
If you still have questions about tagging or would like to request a feature be added, please let us know.
