Within Teamwork, you can use project specific tags to help manage and organize your projects and project items. 

Note: Project specific tags are available on the per-user Premium plan and above. 

You can create, edit, merge, and view project specific tags from both your site settings and within individual projects. 

To manage project specific tags in a project, go to the project’s Settings area and select the Tags tab.

Merging project specific tags

If you select more than one tag from the list, you will see the pencil icon change to allow you to merge those tags.

Selecting the merge icon allows you to combine all selected tags into one single tag. You will have the option to name this new tag before merging. 

Once merged, the overall count of the individual tags will appear on the newly created one.

Project items using the old merged tags will now be tagged with the new tag.



Using a project specific tag 

When applying a tag to any project item, the tags dropdown will open with all of your existing tags. Any project specific tags for the project you are in will be listed first, with your remaining tags available below.

Click the Hide option to only display project specific tags in the dropdown.
