What is a shared tag?
Shared tags work to organize content across your platform. When you publish content, you have the option to assign various shared tags to it. Content pieces that are assigned to the same shared tag will be grouped together on the corresponding shared tag page. These pages are known as career communities.
Shared tags are labels that are relevant for all content types, like Career Communities, Audience types, or Industries.
Shared tags play two major roles on your site: they act as (1) pages for career communities to organize content, and (2) as labels that allow you to segment your audiences -- and eventually determine which types of content users receive in their automated alerts.
Note: It's important to remember that shared tags are different that content categories, which are only relevant to the form of content they were created to organize. To learn more about content categories, read this article.
