Enabling flags


Recommended Posts

It's possible to add descriptive flags to your observations and reflections. You'll then be able to filter your posts to quickly find observations or reflections containing these flags.

If you need any help setting up reflections on your account you can find our tutorial on this here.

In this tutorial we will look at how to enable pre-made flag sets on Tapestry, if you want to add your own bespoke flag sets, take a look at this tutorial


To enable flags you'll need to go to the Control Panel (1) > Settings (2) > Flags (3).





On the Flag Settings page you can then add your own bespoke flag sets (1) or you can click into one of the headings to enable pre-made flag sets (2). To learn more about creating your own bespoke flags, click here




You will then see a list of flag sets you can enable, as well as whether they are enabled or not for reflections and observations (1). You can see the individual flags available for each flag set by clicking 'View Flags' (2).





A box will then pop up with a preview of those flags.




To enable any flags click the configure button next to the flags you would like to use.




You will then be given the option to enable these flags for observations (1) and once you select to enable it, an additional option of whether you would like them to be visible to relatives appears (2). If you choose not to tick this option, published observations containing flags will still be visible to relatives; they just won't be able to see the flags themselves.

If you have Reflections enabled on your account you will also have the option to enable the flag set for them (3). As reflections are never visible to relatives you will not get the option to enable flags for relatives here. Once you're done, click 'Save' (4).




The flags settings page will then be updated with any changes you have made.




If you would like to quickly enable all flags in a section (for example here we are looking at the United Kingdom - EYFS 2021 section), click the 'Enable all' button at the top right.




You'll then be given the option of enabling these flags for staff only (1), or to make them visible to relatives too (2). Either option will enable these flags for both observations and reflections.




To then learn how to use flags on Tapestry, take a look at this tutorial.
