What are tags in LabChart Lightning?

LabChart Lightning allows you to tag your recordings with any labels you like. Tags are keywords (such as subject, study date, group, collaborator, etc) that you can attach to regions, annotations, recordings or subjects. This way, you can identify, organize and locate them easily in the future. 
You can search for tags throughout a recording or project in the Recordings tab in the lower right sidebar or via the Recordings Picker using metadata. You will see them displayed as a "tag" or a "group" icon.
