Sorting or Categorizing Tags/Can't Add People Into Tags

Tag folders help organize your tags. Tags can be grouped within folders. Folders can also be grouped within other folders. We recommend using folders to structure your church similar to the best practice example. Tag folders can be created, edited, and deleted, in the same way that tags can.

Important note: tag folders cannot store people, they are simply a tool for organizing your tags.  If you are unable to add people into a tag, make sure that you have created a tag and not a tag folder.

  • Is there a way to filter people within a tag? Example: I want to filter all the males in a particular tag, instead of forming a new tag called 'men.' 

  • Hey @bradburns!

    Absolutely! To filter people within a tag you will simply navigate to:

    1. People

    2. Show more filter options

    3. Scroll to the bottom and select Tags<Tag Contains<Choose your tag

    4. Scroll to the top and select Gender<Male

  • Is there a way to make attendance sheets from tags instead of events? I'd like to make Vacation Bible School attendance sheets for each class without having to make each class an event. Vacation Bible School is the event. Within the event I have classes (1st grade, 2nd grade....) and then I've tagged the participants for each class. Now I'd like to take that and make an attendance sheet and also a sign in/sign out sheet.

  • HI @pam!

    Great question! You can actually set your 1 event Vacation Bible School to Specific tags (1st grade, 2nd grade...) 

    This way you only have one event, but you can print attendance sheets for each class (tag) without having to create each class as an event. 

    Here are some additional resources that will be most helpful:
