Tagging assets for better organization

Tagging is one of the fundamental steps to organizing your assets in Brandfolder and is one of our best practices. Tagging facilitates organization, discovery, search, and filtering of your assets for both you and your users. Use tags as fine-grained refinements for searching and filtering capabilities. You can then leverage pinned tags to create reusable filters for commonly used assets.
