    #Tag a Post in MyIT with Superbox

    Pascal Junker


      i would like to know how to use the tag function in MyIT Superbox. The Welcome Splash Screen tells me use "@" to add People and use "#" to tag your post.


      Tagging is like a hashtag that we know from Twitter. Or the Tag function from this communication board.


      On Twitter, the pound sign (or hash) turns any word or group of words that directly follow it into a searchable link. This allows you to organize content and track discussion topics based on those keywords. So, if you wanted to post about the Breaking Bad finale, you would include #BreakingBad in your tweet to join the conversation. Click on a hashtag to see all the posts that mention the subject in real time


      My expectation from MyIT is now: When i used this Tag function, the system will convert it into a searchable link. User can click on this to search other post with this task and the user can follow this tag, the same like People, Service or Groups to receive any new update with this tag.


      MyIT dosn't convert this Tag into link, i can't follow this tag, i can't search post with this tag.

      What is it for? Any ideas how to use it?

          Hi All,

          any idea on this feature? Is this a missing feature or Bug? Again, my expectation is - the system has to convert the Post Tag into searchable link.


          Any feedback or experience?

            You can search for hashtags by going to your MyIT profile, click the "Requests" drop-down menu and change it to "Posts". Then click the magnifying glass icon just to the right to search. It only shows posts that you have visibility of, though.

            To properly make use of hashtags, I think you would probably need to be making use of MyIT's group functionality (on the Updates page, click the + button on the right side of the page to make a group).


            Personally I can't see any scenario where we'd use any of this, but that's as far as I think it goes.

              Hello Paul,

              thanks, but this a normal search on you feed or posts. It isn't any more searchable function because is a Hastag. In fact this Hastag is useless..


              I would like to see after creating of Hastag, a searchable link to other Posts from other People not just my own posts..

              I would like to follow this Hastags, to get informed if some updates on this keyword.


              The BMC R&D Team, know the lack of function, more function around the Hastag is on the roadmap...

                Glad to hear the R&D team is planning to enhance this functionality....
