All candidate tag groups and tag values must be defined by the user in the 'Candidates' screen. When creating these, you have complete freedom as to how you wish to name the group and values, and whether they are numeric or text based.
Creating Candidate Tag Groups
To create your custom tag group, select the 'Create Tag Group' button in the bottom right of the 'Candidates' screen.
This will open a dialogue which will allow you to add the name of the tag group and any related tags, you will be able to edit this at any point. You will also be able to select whether to use 'Text' or 'Numeric' tags.
Please note that after these tag groups have been created that all the tag groups and tags will be available to be applied to any candidate created in Surpass.
Examples of Custom Tag Groups

If, for example, you are an awarding organisation that delivers tests nationally/internationally you are able to define candidates by place of graduation or the university/college they are currently studying.
Custom Tag Group: Place of work

For vocational courses with candidates who are working in different places across the globe, the place where the candidate currently works may be another useful identifier.
