In this article, you will learn how to label jobs with tags.

What is a job tag?

Tags are a great way to categorize your jobs and help you and your team stay organized. Tags allow you to group your jobs by default statuses like estimate, opportunity, followup, and callback.

Workiz also allows you to create custom tags for jobs that make sense for your particular workflow. For example, you may want to create tags that indicate when jobs are planned vs. emergencies, or to highlight when your Workiz admin should read the notes on a job’s page.

Here are some other common custom tags used around the Workiz community:

  • Follow-up

  • COD (cash on delivery)

  • Warranty

  • Parts on order

Labeling a job with a tag

  1. From the sidebar menu, select Jobs

  2. Select the Job ID for the job you want to add a tag to

  3. From the pop-up sidebar, select Assign Tags and choose a tag as desired

Creating a custom tag

  1. From the Jobs page, find a job you want to create a custom tag for and select the Job ID > Open Job Page

  2. Select the plus icon next to Tags to add a tag

  3. Select Create new tag and complete the following fields:

    1. Add a new tag: Enter a name for the tag you want to create

    2. Color: Choose a color for the tag you want to create

    3. Select Save Tag

  4. To add the tag, select it from the Job tags pop-up menu

  5. Select Update Job

Filtering jobs by tags

  1. From the sidebar menu, select Jobs

  2. Select the Filter results dropdown menu at the top of the Jobs page and choose the tag you want to filter by


    Tip: Because jobs can be labeled with multiple tags at once, you’ll need to make sure you deselect certain tags from your filter when you don’t want to search for a combination of tags.


Tags will help you and your team stay more organized, making sure that you are as prepared as possible to respond to each job on your Workiz account.
