What Is a Query Tag?

A query tag is a user-defined label that describes or categorizes a query. As long as it is meaningful to you, the label can be a single word or phrase that identifies the type of query or its purpose.

What Are the Benefits of Tagging?

Tagging your queries is optional, but having a tagging system is useful especially if you have a lot of queries. One benefit of using tags is that they are searchable elements. When you want to locate a query saved in your system, you can use the tag to help you find it quickly. Tags can be used to identify various collections of queries. So, if you devise a tagging scheme that you consistently apply when saving your queries, you can use the tag as a filter to quickly locate all of the queries in your system that share the same tag.
