New Tag Management Page (Beta)

(July 8, 2019)

Adform has released a BETA version of a brand-new Tag Management page - a powerful and handy tool designed to help you manage tags efficiently. The Tag Overview page shows a list of tags from all of the orders you have under a particular campaign so you no longer need to switch between orders.

With this release, you can customize your tag list, quickly filter large numbers of tags, explore statistics without generating reports, create thousands of tags in a few clicks, multi-edit tags, export them to a spreadsheet, and do much more. Creating, setting up, searching, filtering, and exporting can now be done faster than ever before. 

The new page is located under the Tag Management Beta tab on the Line Item page.
