Tagging offers a flexible way of tracking ideas and segmenting your reports so that you can analyze product demand at a granular level.
Tagging allows you to group your data. Tags can apply to requests, users (teams, visitors, and prospects), and accounts. This makes it easier to efficiently analyze your data.
You can then use these tags to take a closer look at your data with Feedback Reports. You could, for example, see the most popular requests by Enterprise customers who are based in Europe.
Rather than trying to tag every user or every piece of feedback you receive, we recommend that you focus on groups of users, requests, or accounts. Start small, and work your way up as you find knowledge gaps in your feedback database.
Tags can be added through Pendo Feedback to requests, to visitors, team users and accounts based on your strategic goals. For more information, see the following articles:
- How to add tags to requests
- How to add tags to visitors
- How to add tags to team users
- How to add tags to accounts
Auto-tags will pull data from your product, and automatically add tags to visitors and accounts in Pendo Feedback. This lets you view requests and reports from specified user or account groups.
For more information on auto-tagging, see Auto-tagging in Feedback.
Categories offer a way of grouping tags together in your in the Reports and Browse pages of Pendo Feedback. This makes it easier to find the tags you're looking for.
To add a category, enter the tag like you normally would, but use the following format:
For example, you might type, "Industry: Education". In this example, "Education" is the tag, and "Industry" is the category.
You can also select existing filters that appear as you start typing.
Note: Creating new tags is restricted to users who have the correct permissions. For more information, see Manage Teams: Roles & Permissions in Feedback.
Once you've added a tag & category, the category and associated tags will be added to your Reports and Browse pages, where the category has created one easy drop-down menu:
