    Guys, one of the neatest features of our software is the ability to "tag" threads with common keywords or phrases to make finding them in the future easier for the community membership!

    For example, if I were starting a thread talking about "How to get Outlook Sync working with my Droid" I may tag the thread as follows:

    outlook, outlook sync, outlook droid, droid sync

    This makes it easier for Search Engines to find out what we are talking about and gives humans the ability to click on certain tags and view all the threads related to that particular tag/subject.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can even tag other people's threads if they forget too. Just scroll down to the bottom and look for the tags/edit tags area.

    I will try to make myself useful, I am tagging threads as I go along. So many have no tags at all.

    Bumping to the top. Looks like there are a ton of new threads being created without tags :(

    Everytime you forget to tag a thread, somewhere a droid dies....

    How do you edit the tags if needed later on? I need to do this with one of my threads and if there's an "edit tags" option I'm not seeing it...

    Oh, I didn't use the tag feature in my first post :), even I didn't know there was such a useful feature before.

    "Tagging" threads with common keywords or phrases is really a very neat feature, that can make community members / Search Engines to find what they want easily and exactly.

    However, May I ask a stupid question? How to use the "tagging" feature? when I post this reply, I still didn't find where to tag the keywords :redface:. Can someone help me out?

    Append: Just I saw John told "just scroll down to the bottom and look for the tags/edit tags area" and got it. Because the letters are very small I didn't notice that, thanks! :)
