Tags help you organize Docs on a whole new level!

Tags shine when you need to group, view, or manage related Docs that don't have a formal Relationship or have been shared with a location in your Workspace's hierarchy.

What you'll need

  • Unlimited Doc tags are available on our Business Plus Plan and Enterprise Plan

  • All other ClickUp plans include 100 uses of Doc tags

  • Guests can add or remove tags from a Doc, but they can't create, edit, or delete Doc tags

  • Guests can only use Workspace Doc tags

A use counts as:

  • Creating a new Doc tag

  • Adding a Doc tag to a Doc

  • Removing a Doc tag from a Doc

  • Deleting a Doc tag

Types of Doc tags

There are two types of Doc tags that enable you to organize and find Docs even faster!

  • Workspace Doc tags: These tags can be added to any Doc anywhere in your Workspace

  • Private Doc tags: These tags work exactly the same as Workspace tags, but they are private

Workspace Doc tags are available to the members in your Workspace. Private Doc tags are only visible to you.

Pro tip: Private tags can't be converted to Workspace tags.

Doc tags options

You can edit existing Doc tags by hovering over a tag and clicking the ellipsis.
