A tag is an instance on the timeline that you want to save, like a timestamp. The start and end points as well as the duration can be determined by the user.
For example, we may want to add Tags for all passes.
When a tag is created, a row on the timeline will also be created where tags can be visualised.
- From the Home page navigate to the Tag Templates window, and choose the Tag Template Designer.
- To create a new tag, choose the Tag button, and give it a name.
- This will create a button in your tag template for the tag.
