Best way to use Tags to categorise Data


Create an object named tag

Add a list of tags to the project object

A tag can be an options set or an actual data type. If you build an admin dashboard for an admin user to manage your data then data type is the way to go because the admin can create/deactivate tags there.

Tag should have a field to assign them as active or inactive when needed (to be managed from the admin dashboard by admin users). A yes/no field should do the job.

In the UI make them visible and functional only for tags “active?“ is “yes”

Use repeating groups or multi dropdown inputs in the UI to show/manage them as needed

You can complement the system with this interesting technique by @TipLister for lean and simpler searching:
