View Tagged Content

Clicking the selected tag will redirect you to a page where you can view all the records that have been assigned to your selected tag. This way you can search for any required tag within the system.

For instance, clicking Gold will redirect you to the page with a list of all records that have Gold as a tag.

The number in brackets indicates the how many records within the group are assigned to the selected tag.
