Define Data

Data Setup

In the Tag Smart Content app

Smart content provides a powerful way to merge content, logic and data. Data is the fuel, and defining data is easier than you might think.

Data is defined using fields. Fields have properties like name, label and form control.

You only need to choose names for your fields, everything else is optional or taken care of by Tag.

Fields and properties

  • :- Fields can be added, removed and reordered in the data tree.
  • :- Field names are used in expressions while labels are used in forms.
  • :- Form controls provide hints to make forms easier to use.

Form preview

  • :- Forms are automatically generated for your data fields.
  • :- Form preview lets you take a quick peek at what the form will look like.
  • :- Form controls can be grouped into collapsible sections to streamline larger forms.

More Options

  • :- Dropdown list form controls make custom pick lists. Enter values during setup that appear in the form (see inlayed image).
  • :- Common definitions can be made using predefined fields. Define once, and reference as many times as needed.
