    Word 2010 Backstage View, Tag option

    I'm curious to know what use people make of the TAG option that appears in the Backstage View in Office 2010 products. There's no documentation that I can find on the Microsoft site that would suggest the various benefits of this option. So, I'm curious what use other make of it, if any use.

    When you click on the File tab and go into the Backstage View, Info tab, on the right side of that view, under properties, you can add a title to the document, comments, and TAGS...I just don't know what purpose that serves.

    Tags are just another way of classifying a document that can be used in searching for related documents.

    For example you could use a Client ID as a tag or a project ID as a tag and then search on the relevant tag to bring up all related documents. Personally I have never used them as I tend to keep related documents together, however I am sure other people will find a use for them.

    As a demonstration, I created a blank document with a tag of WSL to show how to search on a tag:
