So there it is. A simple, streamlined, and customized way to add tags to a specific workflow.

 By implementing unique tags for differing workflows you are able to maximize your efficiency and internal communication.

Whilst doing so, it is key to create tags that are sensical and have common understanding across your enterprise.  So, while specificity is crucial, overly doing so can be negatively impactful.

With anything business wide, communication is essential, so ensure that you are always clearly conveying the intent of your tags to your team, so they are best able to implement your new and changing processes.
