Together HowTo: Tags

As the amount of questions grows, adding right tags to your question gest important. Readers do not go through a list of 1500 questions - they filter them, and most easiest filters are the tags.

Questions can be filtered with several tags (showing only questions which have them all), but there is a small bug when doing that (see answers for workaround). This issue was also handled in question #7897

The most important tags are:

  • feature-request / enhancement / idea Use when the question relates to new features
  • bugUse when existing feature, either in UI, App or in the device itself doesn't work as it should
  • how-to Whenever your question is about how to get something done with existing features.
  • androidwhen the question is anyhow realated to Android Support (usually an Android App)
  • ui/ ux UI stands for User Interface, UX for User eXperience
  • askbot IMPORTANT when your question relates to using this together portal

If the question relates to a single Sailfish App, it's also normal to add a name of that app as a tag. Most used at the moment are email,browser,contacts/people, calendar, camera, settings

Tags like Sailfish, SailfishOS and especially Jolla are not too useful, as about all questions relates to these.

IN CONCLUSION: Try to select tags wisely. Well chosen tags grows activity towards your question and helps others, including developers, to concentrate on questions of their speciality or interest. Avoid extra tagging - the ability to use 5 doesn't meaan there have to be 5.

ALSO: If you run into an important question, and it seems to miss a relevant tag, please edit the question to add one. Not all together visitors are familiar with using tags, so we could help each other a bit here. The goal is to get themost important questions under development (at this point, they are probably the questions tagged with bug, ui, uxand existing Sailfish application names.
