Add item tags

You can append custom pieces of data to contents items using line item tags. These tags don't have any effect on the default functions in the estimate; they are used to provide additional item information such as a contact, a resource, or a date. All line items are automatically tagged with the date that the line item was entered.

Tags can be used to filter the items you are viewing or the items you want to include in a report.

To access the line item tags in the estimate, click Tags on the toolbar of the Inventory, Pricing, or Interview tabs.
