Vessels can be tagged to create lists of vessels and fleets that your organisation needs to keep track of. To provide more context, notes can be included when a tag is added to or removed from a vessel. A tag can have multiple notes and anyone in an organisation can add subsequent notes to tags on vessels for further dialogue or collaboration.
Once you have selected the group of vessels you are interested in, you can create a tag and add it to all of these vessels. You can add a note at the same time to provide further information. Vessels with the same tag generate a list of vessels, and all tagged vessels are available to all users in your organisation.
Tags can be used as part of an advanced filter if you would like to understand which tagged vessels are in your area and timeframe of your analysis.
All vessels with tags are accessible from the ‘Tagged vessels’ page. Here, you can filter the list to view certain tags and bulk manage tags on vessels.
When vessels are tagged the tag is added to the vessel history at the current time and location of the vessel. The user who assigned the tag is also noted. This means tags can help manage processes like vessel assessments, inspections, and surveillance planning.
Tags have an audit history, which is visible in each vessel’s track history. These tag events are not editable and means that every time a tag is added and/or removed, it is permanently recorded. Tag labels are not editable. Notes can be edited and deleted, and all notes and any changes to them are recorded in track history.
If your organisation is using a large amount of tags users can choose which ones are relevant to them and hide the rest.
