Adding and Using Tags for Artwork
In Timbre you can add tags to artwork by navigating to your Artwork gallery. You can do this from anywhere in Timbre by selecting the artwork icon in the navigation modal on the left of your screen or clicking on edit on your selected artwork.
In the editing modal, you are able to change the name of the artwork as well as create a new tag or apply an existing tag to your selected artwork. When you are done adding tags, click Submit to update the tags for your artwork.
In order to use multiple tags for an artwork, you can select tags in sequence if they are existing tags.
When adding new tags, enter the text for the tag and hit enter before continuing to the next tag. It is suggested that you do not use special characters in tags apart from "-" and "_" to seperate words in order to comply with syndicatory requirements.
How to Manage My Tags
Filter by usage
|Show All||No filters applied. This option allows you to see all your tags across Timbre|
|Unused||Tags that are not in use.|
|Used||Tags that are in use.|
|Feeds||Tags that are associated with a podcast.|
|Items||Tags that are associated with an episode.|
|Artwork||Tags that are associated with artwork.|
By using the filters you can delete all tags that are used, unused, associated with artwork, etc. You are also able to refine the tags list by name.
Applying Retention Periods with Tags
To help manage your Timbre storage you can set up a retention period. A retention period indicates how long a storage asset should be retained before being deleted. This automatic deletion process will remove old or outdated Episodes/Storage assets based on your preferences. In Timbre you are also able to use tags to apply retention periods to new episodes. Head to Other Settings where you can find Manage Storage/Episode.
This is a permanent removal process that cannot be reverted.
Click +New Retention to bring up the Retention Period modal and add a new retention period with selected tags.
Your new retention period can be set to only apply to the tags you associate with the retention period. This will apply the retention period settings to the episodes to which you have applied this tag. These tagged episodes will then be removed according to the retention period set.
