Document tags - Trusts

This article will guide you through the process of tagging trust documents. Tagging documents create subcategories within the documents tab to enable you to find them more easily. 

Documents tagged as minute or resolution will automatically be added to the minute book of the trust. Similarly, the trust deed and variations will appear on the Workspace of the trust as well as in the documents tab.

Connectworks has a list of tags already in the system, start to type a tag and the options will appear. Alternatively, you can also create new tags simply by typing them and selecting the new tag option. For example a document for the Agreement of Sale and Purchase of 123 High St could be given any combination of tags such as: "Legal' 'Agreement' 'ASP' 'Property' or '123 High St'.

For your reference, a copy of our current Trust Document Tags can be downloaded at the bottom of this article.

Adding tags to an existing document

To tag documents, you must first enter the Documents tab of your trust, please see Accessing Documents to navigate to the documents tab.

1. Place a tick next to the document you would like to tag
2. Click on the cogs on the top right-hand side
3. Select edit


This will open up an edit document form, here you can edit the name of the document, add tags, description and determine the confidentiality of document. See more on confidential documents here. 


Once the document has been appropriately tagged, it will appear under that tag subcategory.
You can search for documents by selecting different tags. The tags appear from a drop-down menu under the search bar on the left-hand side of the documents tab.


The tags assigned to the document also appear under the name of the document, as you can see in the above example.


Uploading Historical Documents & Adding Tags

Historical documents can be uploaded individually or in bulk (up to 10 at a time). Individually loaded documents can be re-named before uploading, while bulk loaded documents will be uploaded with the name you have saved on your hard-drive (this can still be updated later). It is recommended to ensure a consistent naming format for your documents before bulk uploading.

1. Enter the Documents tab from the trust’s workspace.

2. Select the “I would like to” drop down and then “Upload a document (Historical)".

3. Either drag & drop your document/s into the upload area, or search your hard-drive using browse.

4. Apply Document Tags to ensure the documents are easily searchable, and that key documents appear on the main trust workspace. 

5. Enter a description of the document if desired.
