Creating metatags

To create a metatag: 

  1. Click New. The "New metatag" screen opens.
  2. Enter a Name for the metatag.
  3. Enter a Description for the metatag.
  4. Select whether the metatag is Mandatory or not. 
    • If this option is selected, the metatag will automatically be assigned to all questions that are created.
  5. In the Values section, click New. The "New value" screen appears. A metatag must have at least one value before it can be saved.
  6. Enter a Name for the metatag value.
    • Selecting the Make default option will make this value the default value for the metatag, meaning it will automatically be selected when the metatag is assigned to a question when the metatag set to mandatory.
  7. Click OK to save the value or Cancel to return to the Metatags screen.
    • To delete a value, tick the checkbox to the left of that value and click Delete.
    • You can change the default value for the metatag by selecting a value and then clicking Toggle default. Only one value can be a metatag's default. If a value is the metatag's default, clicking Toggle default will change its default from true to false, and the metatag will no longer have a default value.
  8. Click Save to save the metatag or Cancel to delete the metatag and return to the Metatags screen.

Once a metatag has been created, it can be assigned when creating or editing a question.

Deleting metatags

To delete one or more metatags:

  1. Select the metatag(s) you want to delete by ticking the checkbox to the left of the metatag(s).
  2. Click Delete.
  3. Confirm that you want to delete the selected metatag(s) by clicking OK or Cancel to abort the deletion.
