Tags can be found in the Administration module > Settings > Management tab > Tags tab. Tags can be assigned to Suppliers, Products or to Invoice Stubs. Once a Supplier Tag has been created, it can then be added to a Guided Buying Collection.
Tags allow Communities to group Suppliers by categories into Guided Buying Collections like 'Office Supplies'. Tags also allow Suppliers to be grouped into broader cross-cutting categories such as 'Sustainable' or 'Preferred'.
Product Tags remain visible on the product throughout the purchasing process so items can be easily categorized during checkout and approval.
Communities can also apply a Boost to Supplier and Product Tag so that any Supplier or Product with the tag will be boosted in the search results. For example, if the 'Preferred' tag is boosted then any supplier meeting the search criteria AND tagged with 'Preferred' will appear at the top.
Tags can also be used to assist Accounts Payable with managing invoices sent to the Unimarket Invoice Inbox. The invoice stub can be assigned Tags to help identify who within Accounts Payable is responsible for reviewing the invoice.
To create a Tag Select Add Tag under the Search button.
Select the Type, enter the Name, a Description and choose the Color of Tag. Click Add More if you wish to create additional Tags, Click Add to create the Tag and close this pop-up.
|Note: The Supplier and Product Type of tag requires you to choose a Boost level to provide priority to tagged Suppliers and Products when searching.
Supplier Tags can be assigned by a Community Administrator, or Supplier Administrator by Editing a Supplier on the Settings tab. Under the Purchasing section, supplier tags can be entered. Once a Supplier Tag has been created, that Supplier Tag can be added to your Guided Buying Collections. See here for more information on Guided Buying.
Product Tags can be assigned by a Community Administrator, Catalog Administrator or Supplier Administrator by viewing the catalog and press the three dots on the right side of Add To Cart and then pressing Manage Tags.
