Using Tags in Applications


#1

I’ve been contemplating the utilization of “tags” functionality for
categorizing records in my application. For example, a record can have
any tag associated with them: volunteer, donor, phone_caller, etc.
(Much like delicious)

Has anyone already laid out a good architecture for implementing this
on the DB, or other medium? I’m sure I can custom build something, but
why re-invent the wheel. :wink:

Thanks. Dave
