How can I filter search results with tags?

Tags are simple labels which may be derived from content in source applications or created by end-users themselves and associated with specific search results.  Examples of  tags include, but are not limited to; folders in Box, metadata from Google Drive or email recipients associated with a Gmail message.

One or more tags may be selected to filter search results to those which are similarly tagged with the same label:

  • mutual nda in dropbox tags:nda,Templates [search for the words 'mutual nda' in Dropbox and filter content tagged with the words 'nda' and 'Templates' (note: tags are case sensitive)]
  • If the tag is multi-word, use quotes, for example tags:'case history'.

Or select the 'nda' and 'Templates' tags from a result to filter the search results:
