Custom tags

Why create tags?
Custom tags are labels that you define for a particular set of work items in your backlog or sprint. They are the quickest and easiest way to group a similar set of work items based on a specific category. 
For example, if your team works on three different processes simultaneously and has work items scattered randomly, how can you classify them? Let's say the three different processes are integrations, product road map, and new enhancements. All three can have individual tags, and you can associate the work items to the relevant tags. 
    1. Filter the particular set of work items based on the process tags. 
    1. Create a custom view and categorize work items based on the three different tags.

Available plan:  Premier and Professional

  1. Admins can add, edit, delete, and associate tags for all the work items across projects. 
  1. Managers and members can edit and delete tags created by them.
  1. If the work item is unassigned, the tag owners can edit and delete tags. Other users can add and associate tags to the unassigned work items. 
  1. Tags are available in the Backlog, Epics, and Board modules.

  3. You can add up to 10K tags in your team (i.e, Portal)
