Tags allow you to add keywords to content, which helps users find that content. Managing tags and tag bundles allows for much greater visibility and searchability for important content on your ThoughtFarmer intranet.
Tags can also be added to user profiles to be used with the Expertise locator feature.
Configure how tags and facets are displayed on search
You can determine the number of facets and tags displayed when on search results pages, the Employee Directory, the Group Directory, and in the SuperNav Section Search.
If there are more tags or facets than the number you have configured here then users will be presented with an additional auto-complete box that will allow them to find the appropriate tag/facet to augment their search.
To change the settings in the tables below, go to the Admin panel: Search section > Search settings page, and click the Facets tab. Click in the box corresponding with the setting you want to change, enter the desired value, and click Save beside the box.
