A file must be uploaded in order to create a file posting. Attach a file by dragging and dropping a file into the Attachment area. You can also attach a file by clicking the Note: The drag-and-drop functionality is not supported by Internet Explorer browsers. The Attachment Restrictions section below provides a complete list of attachment restrictions.button and select a file from your computer. Only one file can be uploaded at a time.
After a file is selected, the progress bar displays as the file is uploaded. After the file has loaded, the file appears in the Upload field.
This section enables users to add tags or keywords to their posting. Once the posting is saved, the tags appears as links on the posting, and users can click a tag to view all postings that have the same tag. For example, if you add a "Time Management" tag to your posting, then clicking this tag will display all postings that include the "Time Management" tag. This is an effective way to categorize your posting. Once the posting is saved, you can use the tag to find other postings that have similar content.
To add a tag, enter the tag name in the field. Multiple tags can be added by adding a comma after each tag or by pressing [Enter] after each tag. Users can add new or existing tags. Tags are not case-sensitive or accent-sensitive, however the tag is captured as it is entered (e.g., Management is the same as management and elephant is the same as élephant). Each tag can contain a maximum of 70 characters, and the character limit for all tags in a posting is 200. Note: If a user enters a tag name that is a system-defined tag such as Featured, then this is added as a user-defined tag, which behaves differently than a system-defined tag.
To select a tag from a list of existing tags, click the Note: System-defined tags cannot be selected. These tags are automatically associated with a posting. See Single Item Select Pop-up.link. This opens a pop-up, in which all existing user-defined tags are displayed.
To remove a tag, click the Delete icon to the right of the tag name.
Hashtags can now be used in the body of the posting, and the system will apply the text after the hashtags as tags once the posting submitted.
Hashtags cannot be used within the posting title or within posting comments.
To add a tag to a posting using hashtags, enter a hashtag "#" within the posting body, and the text following the hashtag will be converted into a tag once the posting is submitted.
- Hashtags are not affected by accents on characters. Accents on characters are included in the tag.
- Spaces, new lines, and special characters end a hashtag.
A maximum of 200 tags can be added to a posting. If a posting has reached the maximum number of tags, then no additional tags are added, even if a hashtag is added to the posting body.
In order to remove a hashtag tag, the hashtag must be removed from the body of the posting, and the tag must be removed from the Tags field.

Administrator Note: Tags in Cohorts
