Contact Tags

What is it

Contact tags are labels you can use to categorize and group your individual and organizational contacts in contractuo. This makes it easier to find specific contacts later, especially when you have a large number of contacts.

Who is it for

All contractuo users can create, modify, and use contact tags.

Why use Contact Tags?

  • Organize and categorize your contacts: Use tags to group contacts based on relevant criteria like department, project, location, or any other category that helps you find them easily. For frequently used information, consider creating a tag to group relevant fields, streamlining data entry. This helps ensure consistency and saves time.


While there are no specific requirements for using contact tags, it’s recommended that only authorized organization administrators manage their creation and modification. This helps maintain consistency and organization within the platform for all users.

How Smart Fields and Contact Tags Work Together

Smart fields are customizable fields you can add to individual and organizational contacts in contractuo. They allow you to collect specific information relevant to different contact types. Additionally, you can associate tags with smart fields to control their visibility based on the tags assigned to a contact.

Impact on Contact Creation/Editing
  • When creating or editing a contact, you can assign tags to it from the Contact Details section.
  • Only the smart fields that have tags matching the selected contact tags will be visible and available for filling out. This helps to streamline the data entry process by showing only the relevant fields based on the contact’s tags.

Additional Information:
Assigning tags to smart fields provides a filtering mechanism, ensuring that only relevant fields appear when editing contacts with specific tags.
