How to use Tags to manage your devices?

If you need to manage the devices based on their status, you can use the Tags to help you identify and filter devices.

You could add tags after the devices, such as “abnormal,” “under maintenance,” etc. In this way, you could filter the devices with certain tags in the list to manage the devices much more efficiently.

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process to manage your devices by using Tags.
