How Do I Create Customer Tags?

As of March 25, 2020 customer groups are now managed using Customer Tags.

Customer Tags will still allow you to segment your customers in Commerce7 using a Tag instead of a Group. 

Customer Tags are used to create and identify customized groupings of customers that can be used for functions such as filtering/exporting, marketing, allocations and discounting. Some examples of customer tags are "Friends and Family", "Gold Tier Customers", "Employees", etc.

With Customer Tags, you have the option to create a Manual Customer Tag or a Dynamic Customer Tag (a Dynamic Customer Tag will automatically tag customers based on the pre-determined conditions you set in the tag setup). 

Keep reading to understand how Customer Tags can work with Filtering/Exporting, Marketing, Discounting and Allocations.
