Overview

Tags allows you to add labels or tags to expiration items to identify them with a specific characteristic. They’re commonly used to designate a status to the expiration item or just to classify them into certain groups for later filtering.

You can have multiple tags configured in Expiration Reminder for many different things. Each tag can have its own color to differentiate them from other tags.

 

Adding tags

Adding a tag to expiration item

Once a tag is added in your account, a new button will show on the Expirations screen called “Add tag”. When clicking this button, you’ll be able to add a tag to an expiration.

An expiration item can have multiple tags added to it. Just click on Add tag to keep adding tags to the expiration.
