Tags

Odyssey has a feature called 'Tags' to better organize Media resources. Multiple tags can be added to any media resource, which allows a user to narrow down which media resources are needed as part of workflows.


Adding/Editing Tags

To add or edit tags to a 'Media' resource:

  • Select 'Printshop'
  • Select 'My Resources'
  • Select the 'Media' resource group
  • Select 'edit' next to a Media resource
  • Enter a tag(s) under 'Tags'
    • This can be any word or words that will help a user identify and narrow down when this particular media resource will be used, such as 'Business Cards' or 'Flyers'
  • Select 'Save Resource' after any other edits to the resource are performed


Example of 'Tags' being added to a Media resource


Using Tags in Product Workflows

For a media resource that has tags added, let's show how tags are useful within Product workflows.

  • Select 'Printshop'
  • Select 'My Products'
  • Choose a product workflow that will have 'Media' resources as one of the resources of the workflow
  • Select a process that contains a 'Media' input
    • An example may be 'Cut Parent to Run Size'
  • Select the Media 'Resource' button
  • Place the cursor in the blank box to the left of 'Pick one'
    • A list of tags will be shown
  • Select one of more tags from the drop-down
  • Select 'ok'
    • In the drop-down under 'Pick one', any media that has the tag selected from the box above 'Pick one' will be shown
  • Select one or more Media resources from the 'Pick one' drop-down


Refer to the example below of choosing a 'Tag' from the 1st box, which then narrows down the selection in the 'Pick one' box.


Step 1: Choose as many tags as needed in the first blank box


Step 2: The 'Pick one' drop-down is narrowed down to only those Media resources with the tag(s) selected from the left box
