Manage Tags

This page applies to Compact2Learn students.

A tag is a keyword or term that you or programs create to track information about an activity. You can use tags when filtering reports. If your program creates tags, they are providing you with common terminology that is shared by all their students. Note that tags created by your program are highlighted in orange and tags created by you are highlighted in green.

Create a Tag

If your tags can be categorized in groups, use a standard naming convention, such as Category Name::Option Name, to list your tags together in the Tags drop-down and reports. For example:

  • Age::18-23 (single)
  • Age::24-29 (single)
  • Diagnosis::Adult ADD/ADHD
  • Diagnosis::Anxiety Disorder
  • Diagnosis::Depression
  • Grant::Habitat for Humanity
  • Grant::NIH
  • Language::German
  • Language::Portuguese
  • Service Scholarship
