Received dictations can contain up to two tags, stored as XML data in the dictation notes. Each tag consists of a name and a value (i.e., <name>value</name>). Tag data is usually set when the recording is made.
Tags are optional, and tag names and values can both be configured. How they are used is up to you. Some examples are:
- For storing client or case numbers, to make them easily visible in the dictation list. e.g., <caseno>12345</caseno>.
- For storing the language that a recording was made in, so Express Delegate rules can be configured to automatically assign dictations to a typist who speaks that language. e.g., <lang>French</lang>.
Tags can be displayed in the dictation list on the main window by adding custom columns. See Options ~ Display for more information.
