RapidStart CRM – Hashtags

Unique to RapidStart CRM is our Hashtagging system. It works the same way you identify and classify items on Twitter for example “#interesting”

How to use Hashtags

First understand the difference in categorization methods. The below example is an Account record opened to the Details tab.

  1. Many records have fields for structured categorization, like the “Ownership” picklist field above. This would be used for specific filtering of data by specific structure.
  2. Opening the Hashtags tab will offer an additional “unstructured” capability

Hashtags Tab

  1. This record was previously hashtagged with #TechPackage1
  2. You can add more hashtags by typing here.

All record types in RapidStart CRM have a Hashtags tab, so you can tag phone calls, opportunities etc.

Hashtags are an “Unstructured” way to categorize your data. Once you start hashtagging records, it creates some interesting information that you can access on the Hashtags Dashboard.
