Tags allow you to categorise individual items together for easy filtering and reporting.  With permission to manage tags, you can use Tag Management to create and archive tags in one central area.  Also, with the same permissions, you will be able to create tags outside the dedicated Tag Management feature.

Permission to Use Tags

  • Select Access Control in the Administration area of Radar Healthcare.

  • Under System permissions there is an option called Can manage tags and select which roles can or cannot have access to this functionality.
