Why And How To Use Workflow Tags in BeamON

Knowing how assets are linked to each other is critical in a modern tech environment. The BeamON Tag Management helps you to stay on top of the links between products.

“We can not see how gear is linked to our internal production workflows, but this is important to identify issues and gaps in our inventory”

BeamON offers a Tag Management, that allows you to identify your assets with ease. You can utilize tags specific to your organization to best organize your assets in whatever way fits best. Tags can be organized into groups, with individual tags within a tag category. Tags can be used to link products to your internal workflows, but also to identify asset location, responsible users or if they belong to a certain kit configuration.

Why using Tags for your internal Workflows?

  • Organize Your Workflows
  • Identify Your Assets
  • Identify Issues Faster
  • Use Default Workflows
  • Customize Workflows

How are they displayed in BeamON?

Workflow and other tag groups are visible via Inventory Overview. Each Tag Group has a customizable color code - a simple mouse hover provides you with more detailed tag information for the selected asset.

Workflow and other tag groups are also accessible directly from the Asset Page. Here you can hover to see the tag category or you can click on each tag button, to discover other assets assigned to the same tag - in the shown case we see all products linked to the ENG workflow and can click on each asset to land on the dedicated Asset Page
