Tag Content

Tags are keywords you can create for workbooks, views, data sources, and flows to help you find, filter, and categorize content in Tableau Server and Tableau Online. Authors can tag content when they publish it to a Tableau server. You can also add tags to any content you are allowed to access, and you can delete any tags you have added.

Note: You cannot tag projects.
