If you have a file (or a number of files) that are tagged, but want to extend their tag to their entire families, here is how to do so. Let's use the tag 'Florida' as an example:


Step 1. Go to the 'Tags' view and click on the '...' symbol against the already-assigned tag

Click the ... symbol against the tag


Step 2. Select the 'Prompt' option then click on the 'Save' buttonSelect the 'Prompt' option and click on the 'Save' button


Step 3. In the 'Tags' view, click on the tag's name. This will list all of the files it is currently attached to in the 'Search' view as results


Step 4. Check the 'select all' checkbox. Make sure to click on the 'select all <X> results' text if there are more than 10 search results


Step 5. Click on the 'Tag' button in the right action panel

Step 6. Select the tag by clicking on it if it is one of the presented tags, or type its name into the search bar and click on it when it appears. Make sure the name of the tag is exactly the same as the one you want to spread to the files' families. If sticky tagging is enabled, click on the 'Apply' button after selecting the tag

Select the tag


Step 7. Select the 'Apply to entire family of each item' option and click on the 'Apply' button

Choose the 'Apply to entire family of each item' option and click on the 'Apply' butoon


The tag will be applied to the families of all files that are tagged. This may take a while if there are a lot of files to be tagged. Once this is complete, you can confirm that the tag has been spread to the files' families from the 'Tags' view by noting the difference in the number of files that the tag is assigned to (the number next to the tag's name)


The number next to the tag denotes how many files it is applied to


NOTE: You may need to refresh the page for the number of tagged files to be updated.
