How to change or add a tag in Zoho Projects - Image by Speedy McVroom from PixabayMy Company uses Zoho Projects to keep track of all my projects on the go. We are currently using the “Premium” version of the product. While the “Enterprise” version has far more customisation options available, there are some very useful personalisation features within the “Premium” version.

I assign tasks to my colleagues and work with others outside of my company on a daily basis. The software feels quite intuitive to use but occasionally I come across a problem. This particular one is updating or changing or adding a new tag to my projects. Not using this feature often I forget how to do it and a list of steps I find always useful to refer to. Hope you do too.

How to add a tag

  • Have the screen display all your projects with a column showing tags. Project tags
  • Click in the cell below this heading.

Colour can help you keep your projects in order and flow more easily, showing things up quickly. But if you have colleagues who are colour blind, please remember to consult with them as to what colours work or indeed more importantly do not work for them.
