Applanga Tags

What are Applanga Tags and How Should They be Used?

Applanga Tags are used in the Applanga dashboard to categorize a set of keys. Tags can be added via an integration, manually, or during the screenshot upload process. They can be associated with and used to track things such as features, screens, components, JIRA-related issues, or to help simply sort IDs. You can assign multiple tags to a single key.

Tags are associated with IDs within a project across languages. Tags can also have specific category associations. Categories are used for more specific tracking of keys. Categories exist within a project and can be used to easily differentiate between tags and to track things like platforms, releases, and workflows (e.g. design review, development review, etc.) The Applanga dashboard is pre-populated with some platform-related categories: iOS, Android, Web, and Jira. Category options can be managed on the Project Settings page.

    • If the selection of strings IDs contains some tagged IDs and some untagged IDs, the Tag dropdown can be used to add tags to all string IDs or remove tags
    • Click the Tag dropdown, search for the appropriate tag to add or remove, mark the checkbox next to the tag to tag all strings or click again to remove the tag from all strings

    • Mass Upload Screenshots
  5. CLI Integration - See CLI Integration Documentation

    • Tags allow users to upload and download only a subset of all available strings into or from certain files.
    • The Applanga Github Workflows integration utilizes the Applanga CLI internally so all Tag related available via the CLI are also available in Github Workflows
