How to use Tags: Creating and Assigning to employees

Modified on Fri, 20 Oct, 2023 at 11:22 AM

Tags might be the answer if you have an extensive staff list and trouble identifying the right staff for a given shift. 

Tags are non-position attributes that can be applied to your staff. Tags are separate from positions; instead, they're typically things like locations, skills, or characteristics. Here are some examples:

  • Can lift 30 lbs
  • TIPS Certified
  • Has a car

Please note that if you wish to sort your staff by quality, you may be better off using Nowsta's Levels functionality.


How to create and assign tags

  • Navigate to the Tags page within your account
  • Select New Tag
  • Enter the name of the Tag. Choose something descriptive, as this is how you will filter staff on the other pages.
  • Assign qualified staff to the Tag
  • Select Save

Once your tags have been created, you will be able to toggle them on and off when selecting staff for a given shift.
