Revit Architecture uses dynamic tags, meaning a tag can show a specific piece of information about an object that automatically updates as your design changes. One drawback is that it can get confusing to remember exactly what the information on a tag refers to, though careful use of a "Tag By Category" feature can overcome this. Learn tags in Revit Architecture 2015 with this online video.
…Tags are very common in architectural drawings.…We typically add tags to rooms and doors…and windows and walls and many other items.…Tags often reference a designation on the schedule or on a detail…where we can find out more information about the item in question.…In Revit, the element, the tag and the schedule are all linked together.…The tag basically asks a question of the object to which…it's attached and reports the result in the symbol on screen.…The same designation is often included in the field on…a schedule so that a cross reference can be made.…So I made a file called adding tags and I want to…look at a few different examples of placing tags here in our file.…
So over here on the Annotate tab.…We're going to go to the Tag panel here and…we're going to start with the tag by category command.…The shortcut for this is t + g, and you can…also find the tool up here on the quick access tool bar.…Now if I just slowly move my mouse around the screen, what you're going to…see is little tags kind of come and go as my mouse moves around.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
