###New Forum Feature: TAGS
[EDIT: 2016-04-15 19:06 CT – ADD request for tag suggestions]
We are just getting starting using the Tags feature, but I thought I’d start a pinned topic here to introduce it.
Hopefully, tags will make it easier for everyone to find the topic/macro of interest.
We need your help:
What Tags Do You Want?

**2. Assigning Tags -- available to all when the topic is created*** A Tag field is at the bottom of the new topic entry (only topics may be tagged, not posts) .

- Just click on a tag to view all topics assigned that tag.
**4. Search for Topics by Tag*** Click on the Search icon in the upper right corner of the page. * Enter: "tag:tag_name" For example: `tag:text_expansion` * You can further limit the Search to a Category by adding a "category:category_name" For example: `tag:text_expansion category:macro`

BTW, this topic is tagged with “tagging”, since that is the keyword used by the Discourse forum software on their forum.
