Assigning User Tags

Can tags be added to users?

No. Only groups.

What problem are you trying to solve?

We’re helping a charity. They asked for a way to determine the skills and interests of the volunteers. I started using CustomUserField but ran into a hard coded limit. I thought of using tags.

I think groups will cut it.

Thanks Jay :slight_smile:

What about custom badges? You can easily list volunteers with specific ones. Example:

Can a user set their own custom badges?

I don’t think so, but they can freely join and leave groups to which you can assign automatic badges:

Ah. That helps make sense of your questions! I couldn’t figure why you needed so many custom fields. You could get a plugin to create tags on a custom field, but groups seem like a workable solution.
