Tags are useful for adding extra information about your groups. Each tag has an associated set of options, and some tags are only used by one group type.
Administrators can create and delete tag and tag groups then even use tags to filter groups on the Groups page.
Check out the video below on tags, and then read the rest of the article for more details.
From the Groups tab, click filter to create and edit tags. This will open the Shared Group Tags page.
From the Shared Group Tags page, you can create a new tag group.
