Overview & background

 

What are hashtags?

A tag is another way to group or filter tasks, plans, or photos.  These tags are a great way to organize and associate tasks, plans, or photos with a specific trade, location, punch list, or anything else you'd like.  

 

Can I batch edit hashtags?

Batch tagging can be done on the web version of Fieldwire. Below we will show you how to batch tag tasks and photos. 

 

Tasks & hashtags


Previous articles
 describe how you can add a tag to a task by using the hashtag (#) symbol in the body of the task. However, if you'd like to add or remove a tag to a number of tasks at once:

Step 1: Go to the 'Tasks' page and select all the tasks you would like to tag by clicking the tick mark that pops up when you hover over the tasks.  
Step 2:  After all the tasks are selected, click on the 'Actions' button at the top of the screen.  Then select Manage tags.  
Step 3:  The 'Manage tags' box will appear. Here you can enter a new tag or start typing an existing tag to add the tag to all selected tasks.  To remove tags from the selected tasks, click the 'x' next to the tag name.
Step 4: You can now 'Filter tasks' (on web or mobile) by the tag and only those tasks will appear.

Note: Once the tag is added it, it will appear darker than the existing tags. Darker text means that the tag has been applied to all selected tasks.  The lighter text means the tag is included in some, but not all tasks.  This will be the same with photos and plans.

 

How to Filter Tasks

Note: Whenever the tasks are filtered on the web, the Filter tasks bar will be highlighted.  This will be the same for photos and plans.

The process for batch editing photos is very similar to editing for tasks.  

Step 1: Select all photos that you would like to tag by clicking on the upper left-hand box of each photo thumbnail.  
Step 2: Click on the 'Actions' button at the top of the screen, then select 'Manage tags'.
Step 3:

The Manage tags box will appear. Here you can enter a new tag or start typing an existing tag to add the tag to all selected photo. To remove tags from the selected photos, click the 'x' next to the tag name.

Step 4: You are now able to filter photos by the tag and only those photos will appear.
