Use Tags for more powerful insights

Introduction

When working with Entity Classes, Relationships, Models and Visualizations, numbers can add up pretty easily. See the Data Dashboard below and pay attention to the high counters in the tiles (e.g. 1374 Visualizations).

When clicking a tile to enter the list view of the Entity Classes, RelationShips, Models and Visualizations, a list containing many pages can be presented. Making it hard to find the required item.

Dragon1 offers a tagging mechanism to drill down to the required items, making it easier for you to find the items. Also the use of Tags helps in getting more insights in underlying relationships between items.

Two kind of Tags

Dragon1 supports two kinds of Tags:

  • System Tags
    These can be set by the account manager and are stored in a separate list.
  • Data Tags
    These tags can be set on the fly by a user to an entity.

How to work with Tags?

Working with Tags is straight forward and works the same way among Entity Classes, Relationships, Models and Visualizations.

Getting started is as easy as following the steps below:

  • Log in.
  • Click "Collaboration" in the left side menu.
  • Click "Data Dashboard" to open the Data Dashboard.

  • Click "Data Dashboard" to open the Data Dashboard.
  • Click on a tile (e.g. Applications) to open the list view.
