ADDING/SEARCHING FOR A TAG

One of the features of OCR Buddy is the ability for you, your friends, your teammates, your gym
partners to find events to participate in together. It is very simple to add a specific tag in OCR Buddy
so that the people you race with can find any event your group is participating in.

ADDING A TAG

STEP 1 – SEARCH FOR THE EVENT THAT YOU WANT TO ADD A TAG, AND OPEN IT

Through OCR Buddy, search for the event that you want to tag and double click it to open it. When you open it, you will see the event page as shown. Click the pencil in the top right corner to open up EDIT MODE.

STEP 2 – ADD A TAG

In the Edit Page, scroll down until you see “Tags” and where you see the words, “Search for Tags” type in the tag that you want to add.

In this example, “OCR Buddy Attending is being added as a tag. Type in the tag and click the scroll bar underneath until you see your tag.

     

Leave the scroll on your tag and click “Done”. Your tag will be entered at that point. Scroll down and hit “Submit” to save your added tag. Your tag will then be added.

     

SEARCHING FOR A TAG

Now that someone has entered a tag, you need to search for the tag so you can see what events your race buddies are participating in.

STEP 1 – OPEN THE FILTERS
