I am happy to announce that you can now use hashtags on PUG - just like on Twitter! You can tag a post that starts a new discussion thread, file, or blog with relevant version/product, role, or industry tags! This feature will allow for the content of the posts to be more easily categorized and show up in tagged searches.

When PUG participants want to add a tag their post - start typing "#" and the first characters of a tag in the body of the content, and the system will suggest approved PUG tags* (see approved list of PUG tags here - such as #PowerBI).  The user should select the hashtag they would like to use, and that will automatically tag the thread.

You can also remove tags from your content by editing their post and deleting the #hashtags in their content.  Upon save, the thread will no longer be will tagged.

After you tag a discussion, the tag will show up in the discussion lists allowing users to quickly ascertain the content of the thread. 



You can add tags via email! PUG participants can now reply via email and include an approved PUG #hashtag, and the system will convert the #hashtag into a tag!


*Can I create a new hashtag? No, we have curated the hashtags based on common PUG topics. If you have a suggestion for a hashtag, please feel free to go to your profile and click on the blue button called My Support Tickets and send us your suggestion!​
