‘Tags’ field is mandatory if tags are missing you will not be able to "save" and will get an error. You can add as many tags as you wish. We strongly recommend you tag your article/tutorial with the product name at least.
Here are some of the benefits of adding the right tags:
- Your content will become accessible via the tag cloud

- When you are on the home page What’s New section your content will appear under the right product category
