A category of Flight Plans Tags, User tags are created in the Define New Tag dialog and can be as diverse as the project demands. Within the Tag Values menu they will display whatever defaults were set in the New Tag dialog. The value of a user tag can be changed by double-clicking on it, and the options that appear will depend on the data type set for that tag:

  • Strings and integers will present a textbox.
  • Dates will show a calendar.
  • Booleans will show a dropdown containing True and False.
  • Enumerations will show a dropdown containing all of the enumeration values entered on the New Tag dialog.

Some suggestions for User Tags include Developer or Department to indicate who has responsibility for a group of files, or Stage to indicate how far along in the modernization process a particular file is.
