I am happy to announce that you can now tag discussion threads! You can tag a post that starts a new discussion thread with relevant version/product, role, or industry tags – just like a webinar or a blog. This will allow for the content of the posts to be more easily categorized and show up in tagged searches.

You can tag a post in two ways:

  1. When you start a new post, you will now see a field where you can 'Add a tag' below the message box and above the signature, ortTfHCGES9q8jiBfjBXxK_DSLUG_tagapost.png



  2. If you have already created and sent your post to the forum, you can add a tag next to the little tag icon. Press 'Add a tag' and you can view the list of tags to search from or start typing a term to find a tag.wtmk4XLYR62bhgeou2lp_DSLUG_tagapostdiscussion.png


You can add or remove tags threads that you have started at any time.
To remove a tag, simply press the 'x' button next to it. Other DSLUG users who reply on your thread cannot add or remove tags.Y9TUu0hdRhq5dGYn8V70_removeapost.png



After you tag a discussion, the tag will show up in the discussion lists allowing users to quickly ascertain the content of the thread.cW8reiWbR6CePV3BhUTL_DSLUG_DiscussionList.png



Also when a user searches on that tag, your discussion will now show up in the results.

We have matched the tags to our current ones being used on the site. We hope that you will enjoy using this new feature, and please feel free to leave feedback on this post!

Tags have gotten an upgrade – into #hashtags! This new #WebsiteFeaturesandEnhancements upgrade is intended to make it easier for DSLUGgers to tag their content! 

When DSLUG participants want to add a tag their post - start typing "#" and the first characters of a tag in the body of the content, and the system will suggest approved DSLUG tags* (such as #DynamicsSL2015).  The user should select the hashtag they would like to use, and that will automatically tag the thread.

It will look like this in the discussion view:


You can also remove tags from your content by editing their post and deleting the #hashtags in their content.  Upon save, the thread will no longer be will tagged.

New! You can now add tags via email! DSLUG participants can now reply via email and include an approved DSLUG #hashtag, and the system will convert the #hashtag into a tag!

*Can I create a new hashtag? No, we have curated the hashtags based on common DSLUG topics. If you have a suggestion for a hashtag, please feel free to go to your profile and click on the blue button called My Support Tickets and send us your suggestion!​
