What Can I Use Tags For?
Tags can be used to filter users so its easier to select a subset of users when activating/deactivating users, and adding/removing users from a competition.
Using Tags For Activating/Deactivating Users: On the Organization Users page you can search for users using a tag by searching or selecting a tag in the 'Search Users...' search field. By selecting a tag in the search field, only users with that tag will be shown in the table making it easy to select all users with that tag so you can bulk activate/deactivate users.
