Albert allows you to group materials together by Tags which are completely customizable to an organization’s needs.  Tags work across the Albert platform to connect data together in an organized way.

Search and Filter - Tags

Tags are also a great way to filter and search.  To search Albert solutions by tag, on the left side of the search screen select the tag by either ticking the box or from the magnifying glass by typing in the tag and selecting.  Searching by multiple tags can also refine searches even further. 


Creating Tags – Inventory

To create a tag for an inventory item, after the inventory item has been created, add text to the tags field or tick the box next to an existing tag.  Tags can be created to group items together by specific features including color, application, chemistry, etc.  Inventory items can have multiple tags. 


Creating Tags – Tasks, Data Templates, Parameter Groups

To add a tag for a Task, Data Template, or Parameter Group, search for the tag in the tags field.


If the tag does not exist, type in the tag you would like to add and click “Add New” next to your tag.  Tags can be created to group together by specific features including color, application, chemistry, etc.   Items can have multiple tags.

Tags – Formula Grid

Tags can also be utilized within the formula grid in projects. 

To add tags to a formula, click on the tags field and search for an existing tag by typing or using the drop-down arrow and select.  To add a new tag type in tag field and select “Add New”.


To filter the formula grid by tags, select the tag in the drop-down options.  This view will only display formulas that have that tag.


Tags in Reports

Tags can also be used in reports function to organize and query data that have that tag. 


In summary – tags can be a tool organization’s use to connect their data together across Albert.   

Tags Best Practices

Standardize and use the same tags to ensure you group items across the platform appropriately.  For example, if you are trying to search for all materials that are water soluble, there should be 1 tag to describe that property instead of having multiple that mean the same thing (I.e., water soluble, waterborne, water based, polar, etc.)
