Adding Tags to your listings is a very powerful ability that can be used in multiple tools for multiple workflows. Our tag capabilities are designed to sustain a more organized (and seamless) process of managing listings and orders.
What are Tags and what do they do?
You can think of tags like labels for your listings that only you and your team can see. Adding Tags to your listings can save a lot of time when managing items and processing orders.
Some ways you might use Tags:
label the supplier information,
log the item's warehouse location,
make Custom Filters for certain types of items,
keep track of items that have been copied/imported,
and log other information about your listings.
Tools to use with Tags on listings:
Listings Manager's filters (to view items with certain tags),
viewed in the Orders Manager (for reference to location, supplier, etc.),
and even included in Orders and Listings CSV reports with Report Center (to create picklists, purchase orders, etc.).

Pro Tip: Use the save button to create a quick filter
Step 2 - Export low inventory items from the supplier
