Tags will give you an alternative way to group your items so its easier to search for items across your inventory.
Your folders could be created based on location but if you want to see your items based on "brand" or "color" you could add those as tags and view your items in the "Tags" section of the App.
You can add tags in a few different ways. The first is by adding a tag directly to the item while in edit mode, pictured below:
The second is by clicking the "tags" icon from the main view of your Sortly account and then adding the tag by clicking the "Add tag" button on the top right. This will add the tag to your account, although it won't be associated with any specific items.
From this view, you can also review all of your tags and remove tags from your system. If you remove a tag from the tags section, it will keep the item, but it will remove the tag on all items it was previously associated with.
If you ever want to edit existing tags, you can do so by hovering over the tags and clicking on either the pencil tool to edit the tag or the trash can icon to delete the tag seen here:
Tags can also be managed from the Sortly mobile app by going to the More tab in the app and then selecting 'tags'. This will then pop up all of the tags that are currently connected to your account and you will then be able to make adjustments to the existing tags or see what items are linked with each tag. You can see an example of that here:
